I trained myself well. One moment I feel the escapism urge, my fingers now exactly what to do.
- Type “L” - Autocompletes to LinkedIn
- Type “F” - Autocompletes to Facebook
- Type “H” - Autocompletes to HotUKdeals.co.uk (shopping deals)
That’ll get some time off and distract you from the tough work. So step one was to hard-logout of facebook. So I saw LinkedIn, the facebook log-in screen and the shopping site. Works so far it was a visual reminder not to get caught up in the cycle. But I did see that log-in screen a lot. L-F-H. My fingers know. So recently I went through my Chrome and deleted the bookmarks. Then I went ahead and typed in F and using “Shift + Del” deleted facebook from the search results.
A riddle: When did I delete the autocompletion and what’s the autocomplete for F in L-F-H now?

I am very amused. At least this makes me think “how can I be more productive?” instead of “how do I compare to my friends and which science denier should I debate next”.
