Leechblock

I had to mention this Add-On right after the Rescuetime for a simple reason as it blocks time wasting websites. After you have identified your productivity and made a note of the websites where you spend more time. You can use leechblock to block the websites that are hampering your work. It is very flexible and allows up to 6 websites at one time. This does not mean you should never use social media. You can set timers to block websites after every 30mins of usage in every 2hrs or so. A very useful add-on to have to save time and increase your productivity.
