Surf smart

The internet is a vast source of information and entertainment. You have to control your surfing in a smart way. Otherwise you will loose your precious time. One of my ways of smarter surfing is blocking most of my sinful and wasting websites. Especially the website that help me procrastinate, and don’t help me to make progress.

You could have some browser plug-ins like leechblock but I did not invest the time yet to implement it.

The simplest website blocker is to put your waste full website as the reference to 127.0.0.1 in the hosts file of your computer.

My hostfile just looks like this:
