Jon Good, the founder and CEO of gourmet chocolate company Jon Good Chocolates, understands firsthand how hard it can be to stay on track sometimes.

Good uses a blocker app called StayFocused, which acts as a web browser and monitors your usage on certain websites that might serve as distractions.
