Action 091 - Be Patient.

Because I am such a multi-tasker, I find myself clicking on a link and then clicking elsewhere (another tab, another browser) while waiting for the first one to load. Small surprise, then, that I am often distracted. I peek at Facebook and I lose the next 10 minutes reading and posting there. I check CNN and lose the next 10 minutes reading one news article after another. Wherever I click, I'm going to get lost in a web time vacuum. But there's a solution.

Action 091 - Be Patient. When I am loading up a file or a page, I need to be patient. Wait the 30-40 seconds it might take. The time it takes to wait is far less than the time it will take me to get my focus back should I click away somewhere else.
