If you know me, you know that I play a lot of video games.
The downside of this is that I often don’t make as much progress with my business as I’d like because I am fairly addicted. 🙂
After thinking a bit about where I have the hardest time pulling away from video games, I realized that DOTA 2 is the game that sucks me in the most.
So check this out.
What I’ve been doing that’s been working really well is simply keeping the game uninstalled! I am still allowing myself to play it occasionally, but when I have that 1-hour install time barrier before I can actually play, it often deters the impulsive video game decisions.
So that’s the tip I have here if you want to distance yourself from a vice: create a barrier to entry. Maybe this means taking your TV down to the basement when it’s not in use, or maybe not keeping any alcohol or junk food in the house. You tell me what ideas you have!
