Distraction is the death of online profit potential!!!
In the past I have had my fair share of procrastination, distraction, and a general lack of inspiration. For a while now I have been using rituals (learned this from Eben Pagan) to help stay focused and productive. I have one morning one and an afternoon business ritual where any online distraction is banned.
If I find I am straying away from a desired task I ask the questions "Is this moving me closer to my financial goal or further away?" and "Am I being productive or just just wasting time?" The answer to these questions usually snaps me out of the "distraction trance" I was in and then I can get back to being productive again.
If you are finding yourself pulled like a magnet to Facebook, Twitter, marketing forums (apart from this one of course :) ), and the other billion and one other distracting Website you may like to try out something a bit more hardcore like Rescue Time @ http://www.rescuetime.com/
, this is a paid program but it will allow you to block Websites for certain periods of time so you will not be able to access them.
I haven't had a chance to look at it yet but I have heard good things. Could be worth a look.
All the best,
