Productive procrastination

It's one of life's great ironies that one can spend hours procrastinating by browsing productivity blogs. Lifehacker and 43 Folders have lots of great information for improving your productivity, but I find I fritter away far too much time by searching these sites for tips.

A while ago, LifeClever posted about how to procrastinate more productively, and Lifehacker has a poll up this week asking whether people are more or less productive without internet. Interestingly, the results are fairly evenly split between "internet wastes my time" and "I can't get anything done without internet", with slightly more people opting for the latter.

Lifehacker also has a list of distraction stoppers to keep you to focused on getting stuff done. Some of these tips look interesting.

What do you do to stay focused on the task at hand? Are you a fellow victim of the productivity blog time-sink, or do you find that these blogs actually enhance your productivity?
