Liked what you read? I am available for hire.
Pay me $5 per hour to sit behind you in the library and make sure you don't procrastinate. I screen your calls, ward off anyone that comes near to make conversation, make sure you're not browsing Facebook, blogging or reading about the history of Disneyland on Wikipedia. Better yet, why not set up a website where strangers can monitor each other, for free. I believe strangers would be better at monitoring than friends; if you were trying this with your friends you'd distract each other. Customers would buy this service to train themselves to focus for hours at a time - once they have good habits they won't need someone to watch over their shoulder. Furthermore, the returns from hard work are positive - one half-hour of working hard frees up two hours for drinking or hanging out, time that would have been spent in the library aimlessly surfing the Web. This has limited potential, because I just don't think procrastinators are that interested in changing their behavior, despite what they might tell you.
