Are YOU a victim of the Internet?
By: Paul Hughes
When I first began to develop an internet business I
discovered that I was making almost no progress. I spent
hours and hours in front of my computer, working as hard
as I could (so I thought).
But, in spite of by best efforts I was getting almost
I know that just about everyone goes through this same
Why? If you are working (you think) for hours and hours,
surely you should be getting something accomplished, right?
Not necessarily so.
What was the problem?
What I discovered was that I was allowing myself to become
a victim of the Internet!
The Internet is such a fascinating place, Almost everywhere
you go on it there is a link to somewhere else that you
want to check out!
What you find is you spend nearly all your time following
one link after another, occasionally downloading this or

computer, then trying to figure out how to work this

do the next day, my focus began to improve.
I found that I was beginning to make some progress. The more
progress I made, the more I began to stick to my list.
It is a great feeling to be able to scratch off each item
as it is completed, knowing you have actually accomplished
Pretty soon I was getting entire projects completed, just
by doing little items each day.
I believe this system will work for anyone. All you have to
do is give it a try. Pretty soon it becomes second nature
to you and you will be surprised at how much you will get
accomplished and how good it will make you feel!
