The only problem that can potentially arise from our collective love for productivity tools is the fact that searching for the right ones can often-be a counterproductive us of our time, oh the irony. Bear in mind, we have sacrificed all of our free time searching for just the right ones, we have experienced the counter-productivity it takes to unveil the gems of the app stores, we have traveled to the darkest corners of the interweb and we hope you find value in the productivity tools that were brought back on our journey.

However, there are productivity tools to combat such a time-wasters and one of which is a Google Chrome extension called “News Feed Eradicator for Facebook.” This allows you to receive notifications as normal but replaces your news feed with an inspiring quote.
