Internet would talk a lot about procrastination and the best ways to improve productivity. Since each person has different habits and ways of dealing in everyday life, it is impossible to recommend a specific method to increase the performance when working on a computer.
What we can do is recommend tools to help eliminate (or keep under control) certain activities that create distractions during working hours. Limit browsing Facebook, Twitter and other websites that add little to productivity is a start. Here we show three extensions of Google Chrome for block access to social networks .
