Web de­vel­oper and de­signer de­vo­lute.net Shar­ing an of­fice with tele­sales, of­fice dogs or singing project man­agers can be dam­ag­ing to pro­duc­tiv­ity. As a free­lancer I was able to es­cape but there’s still the Wikipedia rab­bit hole. My so­lu­tion has been Self­Con­trol ( self­con­tro­lapp.com) for macOS. En­ter your par­tic­u­lar vices (or rather their URLs) into the black­list and this app blocks them for how­ever long you wish. I put in 45 min­utes but usu­ally find two hours later that I’m still fo­cused and pro­duc­tive… if my phone is charg­ing in the next room, of course.
