When recording my free time online I notice I go back and forth different accounts. While interacting with numerous websites and apps I also like to have the television on while doing so. Once I am tired of the television I notice I automatically go to Pandora to listen to music. This is just one hour of my online activity. I can only imagine how many times I actually go to the same websites over and over again.

When actually having a goal and paying attention to my actions I usually get what I need done out of the way first. Once finished with one goal or assignment I tend to take a small break before my next assignment or goal. As long as I don’t take very long breaks I can finish what I intended to accomplish.
