I use GTD, so I have a "Someday / Maybe" list Take a look at your projects list, so put all your coding projects, cashflow ideas, and personal improvement goals on one list. Now as you look at that list, decide what you want to put on hold, and move them to your Someday/Maybe list. The rest stay on your Projects list. These will be your focus. A ...
TL;DR Pick 5 books. Shelf the rest. Pick 2 Projects Shelf the rest. Pick one knowledge area until you are skilled enough to be able to answer the majority of questions on SE. Shelf the rest until that moment comes. Steve Jobs famously said (likely paraphrased from elsewhere0 that the most effective people know which projects to set aside. I am ...
I think your first step should be to prioritize those goals. That's a lot to have in your head at one point. The more you are doing at the same time, the more "state" has to stay in your head. Which makes it harder to get moving on it. For example, you are in the middle of at least 20 books. Pick a couple and FINISH them. Then move on to the next book. I am ...
Edit /etc/hosts and add all sites you shouldn't access.

I write code and don't like how much the internet distracts me from work. Here is what is working so far: (I use windows, so I'm not going to be able to make specific app recommendations for the whole list) 1) Measuring. I use history plug ins to chrome, Rescue Time (linux) and TimeSnapper (a window sonly screen recorder). Hard to motivate oneself if you ...
I agree with Dennis. And my way is, for example, there are many tasks(tasks can be finished in hours and days) you need complete in this month, then make a to do lists of them all, separate them in two groups(one is for hours and the other one is for days), and prioritize them. I will take the highest one, then second.... After I finish one, I will cross it ...
Watching videos is not that bad. I do it while taking short breaks myself. Use a time tracking software that can help you like focusbooster or rescuetime. Analyse how much time you're spending on the website and make the change.
Something like Cold Turkey for Linux might help. Or if you want to do this manually, try setting your root password to some random string and write it on a piece of paper which you keep as far away as possible. The physical action of having to retrieve the root password might give you a chance to stop yourself.
Watching the videos doesn't makes bad. but the thing is what kind of video you are watching is the issue. If You are watching any video which entertains you please stop watching that kind of videos. Do watch the videos that will increase your programmatic skills. you will get you. :)
