comment How does office temperature affect productivity?
In order for this answer to be more useful as a stand-alone resource, I'd suggest summarizing the interesting findings or conclusions from the link and/or some of the key papers that are cited. As it stands, this is just a redirect to a list of papers and doesn't really answer the question.

comment What FUTURE-PROOF software for building & managing a personal BIG knowledge base?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about future proof software and making a personal database of information, but nothing about how such a system would aid productivity or how to be more productive in working inside a personal database system. It's an interesting question about future proof software, but off-topic for the site.

I'm deleting this answer because it only provides a quick link but no explanation of how this answers the question, why it's valuable, etc.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a life hack but not productivity.

comment Do noise cancelling headphones block human speech and PA systems?
I think a link to a detailed discussion of how noise canceling headphones deal with ambient conversations work would be helpful as I've also read that some (Bose specifically IIRC) are specifically designed to not, or less significantly attenuate noise in the frequencies of typical human speech for safety and situational awareness reasons.

comment Advantages of disconnected time
Completely anecdotal, but the Verge sponsored someone to spend a year unplugged from the internet. He's back and wrote an essay on the experience.

comment Getting rid of an “I'll do it later” habit
This question, as posed, is too broad to really have any effective answers. It appears what's being asked is a very general question about time management, procrastination, and how to be more productive during working hours so that you don't have to stay late. These themes have been the topic of at least dozens of books--and as a general rule if a question is so broad that it could serve as the topic for a book it's too broad to be a question on Stack Exchange. If you have a more specific question that could yield a narrower answer we'd love to have it.

i think procrastination should be mentioned. Improved grammar and writing.
