    :skull: Mac app to block your own access to distracting websites etc for a predetermined period of time. It can not be undone by the app or by a restart – you must wait for the timer to run out.

    I use https://selfcontrolapp.com/ to block websites that offer a quick dopamine hit, like HN. I put my phone in do-not-disturb mode. I block focus time on Google Calendar and set myself to be DND on Slack during that time.

    Jira actually helps, but I set some time aside to organize it, typically when I know I can be interrupted because it doesn't require much focus. Split every task into multiple subtasks. This makes your progress more visible and projects less daunting.

    Keep a physical notebook by your desk. I've tried alternatives but they're too easy to tinker with and therefore, too distracting. At a minimum you need to offload things you would store in your memory onto something, and the easier and faster that is to do, the better.
