    You and I have been in situations where we were alone in the house and just a
    thought of watching porn was irresistible. This week I was home alone and plus I was on my vacation, and I wasn't even close to open porn site nor I was even close to fap. My only problem is that I don't think that I am productive as much as I want to be. I don't know why is that, every time I work on something I get a sudden urge to watch youtube videos and listen to music. Does anyone have any advice on how to be productive, what should I do with my problem.

  2. Congrats on avoiding PMO when you are not tempted! Now you are ready to move on to avoiding it even when the temptation is very great!

    On productivity, have you seen this from the great Martin Molin? I think his words carry much wisdom.

    Hey brother,

    Yeah I've definitely experienced that before also.
    So without going into details as to what lead me to being non-productive, I can say that there have been "waves" in my life in which I felt the need to be productive and "waves" in which I don't.

    The "waves of production" typically came when I would be around people usually for a weekend who were more successful, wealthier or just more accomplished than me at the time.
    The need to want to be better to fit the societal mold of 'success' lead me to want to be more proactive and productive in my ventures.
    But this all started to change when I went back to my daily routine and wasn't accountable to anyone.

    The moral of the story is that being productive isn't something that comes naturally, it's something that we have to make a conscious effort at in order for it to work.

    For me it was being around people who were more accomplished than me.
    For you it may be something else.

    The point is, giving yourself a soft, gentle, delicate remembrance of what you want to do isn't going to cut it.
    You've got to be in the thick of it.
    You have to give yourself a hard reminder that will force you to work outside your comfort zone.

    Constancy is key here.

    Hope this helps.

    God bless you and your loved ones brother!
