Is Warrior Forum TOO addictive?

Can you work to an allocated number of online hours and (ditto) offline hours? Or do you find yourself losing track of all time and - oblivious of those around you and other tasks - end up doing huge lengthy sessions on WF of several hours or much more per day.

Being the premier and busiest IM forum, with so many more people and information in one place than others, it's easy to become so totally engrossed that the days, months and years disappear in front of you.

At least that's how I feel . . . . .

      Waaaaay too addictive, but for all the best reasons

      The occasional nugget of superb information, good banter, and a great place to learn what you don't already know. The hours do fly by though, as on many forums. Good post.

        I think it's addictive. I don't know why I spend so much time here when I could be building my dream business. I spend so much time writing for a client I hardly have time to write anything for my own sites lol. I think I need a break from the forum.

    We need some help!

    On a serious note, I have to agree that it's too addictive. Hence, as much as possible I tried to logout. It's because if I won't and I'll just close the WF site, the moment I'll place the letter "w" in my browsers' address bar, I can't help but imagine what's going on inside the WarriorForum.

    So it's a matter of discipline and self-control to stay focus.

    WF is a great place with great people.

    It is addictive!!! I think it is because you have people from all over the world trying to achieve the same goal, and help each other do it. This forum is a main source of my success as well as traffic. I feel the need to give back and help when I can. I have received sooooooooo much myself that I will be forever trying to catch up.

      I just try to allow myself 45 minutes a day for the Warrior Forum. I actually set a timer when I log on. Most of the time, it works.

    I would say I am addicted, but in a one sided sort of way.

    Until recently I would just read through and see what people are doing and compare it to what I was doing. I specifically looked for results based posts (who doesn't like results?) and got all excited every time.

    Now I am interacting more which is cool, but I catch myself opening up WF on my iPhone when I am out with friends. Uh oh... Either I need cooler friends or a checkup

    Likely the second one. Haha

    I don't think it's addicting, but that's my opinion. I'm surprised someone commented that "there's always something to comment on"...I disagree. I've been getting a lil irritated with the same questions being asked over and over again when there's threads and threads and threads of quality info about the same questions if the OP's take the time to use the "search" function. >=/

    I will say that it's easy to get sucked into the computer for most of the day because of this business...not necessarily because of this forum. Between writing, editing, networking, forum posting, video making, other marketing, and etc it keeps you busy especially if you get in the zone.

    The WF IS really addictive. I just wish I had joined sooner to help me in my struggles to make money. Now, since I pretty much make enough money online, I just lurk around the forums!

    Yes the WF is addictive. So is Facebook for some people. I learned a long time ago to separate work and fun. It is to easy to think you are working when in reality what you are doing is not making you any money.

    Scheduling time in the WF for work or education is a good way to make sure you are not just hanging out here all of the time when there are other more important things you could be doing to move your business forward.

    i come here in the mornings for 20 mins while i have my morning coffee and answer some questions and help some folks out

    i then come back in the evening for around 20 mins too

    if your spending hours upon hours in here every day then that is not building your business

    by all means take part here but you still need to be doing actual business building tasks rather than just hang out here all day

      Considering this is coming from an addict, take it with a grain of salt.

      No addict that enjoys what they're addicted to thinks it can be "too" addicting. :p

    Haha, We come everyday learning new things, finding more information, more updates about our own market trends. Read, discuss, thank, Welcome, Think on daily basis with the on going list of famous Warriors.

    This way the journey goes on & builds a tendency for the readers to find out more except updates/trends from WF. This cannot be explained in words but can be found after a lot of people / IM's discuss in their own way.

    For some reason, I find WF more addicting when I'm on my smart phone than at my computer. It's funny but I'll be at the dog park for a solid hour with my dog and I'll be surfing WF while he's playing...

    Sure enough, I'll look up and my dog will be waiting at the gate looking at me like..."c'mon dad, you had your fun...It's time to go!"

    It is addictive on the positive side. But it needs discipline. Work is just part of our life; it's not life itself.

    It's addictive! I can spend the whole day to open the threads on by one if I don't have any work to do. I always focus on the work so I have a lot of free time. But there always time when I have no time to visit this forum. There 2 reasons, first I have to create a new product and second when I have quality time with the family.

    Yes it's addictive...

    But it should not be preventing you from being productive.

    Just add browsing forum to your planning and give it a specific time period.

    If you're not here on purpose it's not worth being here at all.

    In terms of it being addictive, think about it this way: Everything is addictive. The problem is how to do you perceive addiction and is it a positive or negative addiction.

    An addiction is referred to be a bad task that you perform or a certain, negative behavior.

    Make sure that you know what you're doing and that you've a clearly structured marketing strategy for your actions.

    It can be addictive, but it depends how you use it! whenever I'm working on a project and I get stuck (i'm not the techiest) I alway come here and search for an answer using the search facilities! I find it much more effective than googleing a subject, so yes I do spend a lot of time on the forum, but its usually constructive time!

    ........although every now and then I get a bit caught up here, but hey ho! its all worthwhile!

    Nope. You need to set a schedule for yourself. Marketing and networking on a forum like this IS important, but you can't let it take over your day. Allow yourself a set amount of time per day and then log off. If you can't allow yourself to get offline after a certain amount of time, make it the last thing you do after your other tasks every day.
