    Well, this is great sharing on particular topic. The thing I know that keep me working online is mind. Keep an organized space. Whether you're doing work in your office or studying at home, having a clean space can help you focus and get your work done with much more concentration.

    It's really a matter of prioritization. At work, I manage the company website, as well as handle several online accounts. Every computer there has key loggers and other employee monitoring software installed, so doing anything other than working on the company site, or processing orders, could cost me my job. I could easily surf the web and play games or Facebook, or whatever, but I know the consequences are not worth the risk, so I don't.

    When it's all said and done, whether you have someone you're accountable to or not, you make the choice to either do your work, or goof off surfing the web. If you were in my position, with the real risk of being unemployed looming over your head, you'd find you had the resolve and discipline to do what you need to do. You have to find the same resolve in your current situation that you'd have if you were in mine. Maybe you're one of those individuals with absolutely no self control and you'd do exactly the same thing working for a company with major oversight, losing your job as a result; but given that you had the discipline to study and learn about web design, or marketing, or whatever, I don't think that's the case.

    My suggestion: set aside a definite time frame to work and treat it like it's a regular job with an employer watching your every move. Maybe even hang a poster of the most opposing figure you can find, staring at you with scrutinizing eyes lol... Either way, if you truly want success in this industry, you're gonna have to dig deep and FIND your resolve and discipline... Best of luck.

    Compartmentalize your entire job into segments.

    Focus on one segment at a time and try to compete the segment without any distraction.

    In this way you will not see your focus getting diverted by anything.

    Sometimes I get sidetracked really easy, especially when I work with my headphones on, paying some good music. To concentrate, I check frequently the tasks list and while watching the clock, estimate in my mind how long would it take to finish all of them. Very often I am behind schedule, so I force myself to work harder.

    I admit, sometimes it is not easy. For me closing email client, disabling IM, and putting headphones with some inspirational music works best.

    You can keep your focus by thinking of what you can achieve when you finished your work. I mean, you have all the time in the world to surf and visit other websites when you have done what you need to do.

    I suggest you make a schedule, or a time management thing. For example, you will oblige yourself to work 5 hours a day, then when you have done that, you can rest and do what you want to do. I am doing this thing, and it was effective for me.

    There have been times when I thought I'd be connecting to the internet, and it wasn't available. Irritating at first, it forced me to explore my operating system more, take notes, and plan ahead.

    I too have a problem sometimes of staying focused on work at hand. The best way to deal with it is make a list of tasks to do for the day and allocate time of day to complete each of them.
