Just because Dianetics is bollox doesn't mean the question is. So I +1'ed it.

comment How to find quality articles, news, and information on the Internet?
If the colleague can tell you that: how does he know? Will he be willing to do all the work and give you your 5 minute summary each day? How can you trust his answers?

comment How long after you drink coffee before it starts being useful
I think "Mind Performance Hacks" mentions that this placebo effect can even be observed /before/ actual ingestion. It's about the ceremony.

comment What nutrition is best to stay productive throughout the day?
BTW: Is there any scientific peer-reviewed study that shows that white sugar is bad? If so, is there any explanation for it? I'm asking because there is so much nonsense published by so called nutritionists that I'm very sceptical about pretty much every such claim.

comment What nutrition is best to stay productive throughout the day?
Unless, of course, you don't tolerate the acid in fruits very well or the fructose. And don't eat fruit if you are allergic to it. So, sometimes white sugar doesn't seem so bad in comparison to anaphylaxis. I guess, @Joe was right about being vague on the nutrition advice.

comment How to be gentle to interruptions?
@MrGomez I can relate to that but I think this whole Q&A site (productivity) is subjective. It's not like there are true answers to most questions. At least not in the sense as there are true answers for programming-related questions.

@MrGomez That doesn't comment on the question, but answer it. Thus, it should be in the answers section. IMHO.

Been there, done that. None of it helped. I'm curious for some ideas.

comment I feel sleepy and tired when I encounter problems during a working day, is that normal?
I don't know if "fight-or-flight response" is a good analogy here but I guess it is at least similar: even though you are not immediately in danger, there is this uncertainty and you ("your mind") has to choose between fight (tackling the task) and flight (escaping the situation). The nice thing about flight (procrastination) is that it always pays off immediately. Fighting does not so we learn to escape.

comment What to do when you have a lot things *you* want to do and you want to do it all, without letting nothing left?
Maybe it's just me but somehow I think that organization and rules are related concepts. Also, you don't like rules but you ask about which rules people suggest. That seems strange.
