With Purdue having a bye, I realized I was paying a lot less attention to football sites etc. But I realized that I also want to spend less time browsing when Purdue has a game and I've basically visited all the sites I want to for the day.
I've asked this other places, and I'm generally curious about different approaches--how do people here not waste more time than they need to? I mean, avoiding clickbait and recognizing it for what it is is good. But is there anything people tell themselves? Or controls you set? I know setting a password for certain wretched time-sink sites works well. But I want to be able to visit my favorite sites once a day and not have them give diminishing returns to scale. Tricks like resetting visited links from a local home page work pretty well, but once I fall into the abyss, there can be a time sink.
Time management obviously has different solutions for different people, so I'm wondering how you all take care of it, or if you have any quick, effective tips. Or even slower-developing general plans.
This concern isn't so much about H&R as about other sites that give less bang for my buck. But I figure a bunch of engineers have some good answers or approaches :).
