The internet is one of the most significant inventions of the past 100 years and was probably designed with the intention of providing us with instant access to information and the ability to communicate with people across the world.
However, sometimes it seems like the internet was created for the sole purpose of distracting me.
The internet has the power to completely and utterly eradicate any semblance of focus that I have previously established.
For me, the site that poses the biggest threat to concentration is YouTube.
The majority of the videos on YouTube are short and it is therefore easy to click on a video under the impression that you are taking a brief break from being productive.
However, each individual video is linked within a seemingly infinite network other videos.
By clicking on a video, you are heading directly into a trap.
Whenever I go on YouTube, I feel a bit like Hansel and Gretel, except instead of following a trail of breadcrumbs to the house of an evil witch, I am following a trail of video clips, moving rapidly towards a procrastination pit.
