    If you set artificial boundary to yourself, you fail.

I'll buy that.

Personally, I've just lived through a couple of years of hell. I'm now (hopefully) coming out the other end. Yes, it's OK to hang out and relax in front of the TV once in a while, but when evenings become a TV marathon because you can't tear yourself away from Repo Games or 1,000 Ways To Die, it's time to quit.

I realized the problem, cancelled my cable in September and got a ton of stuff done, including getting a new home file server set up (with RAID-1), something that I've had good intentions of doing .. for the last 18 months.

It's a matter of finding the right work/life balance. IMO I was spending too much time frittering, and not enough time being productive. That's now changed, but I need to stay on top of it. That may not be necessary for you, but it's what I need to do for myself.

[marinersk]: I saw that you could post it on the Personal Nodelet, but you have to provide the content also. No way to auto-populate it. Not that this would solve my distraction problem...
[LanX]: there are template variables to "Auto-populate" it
[marinersk]: Yeah, someday I might become interested enough to poke around PerlMonks more internally. Most of the fancy stuff is way down on my to do list.
[LanX]: Yeah ...
[LanX]: no variable for votes_left
[marinersk]: Ah, well. I will continue to deal with it, as I have. Thanks for poking about, though.
[LanX]: you are welcome! :)
[marinersk]: LanX, your link to Darmstadt on your Home Node is broken.
