comment How to overcome lazyness and procastination?
+1 GTD. Also my 2 cents: manage your expectations and goals, short or long. If you don't know exactly what you want to achieve, you have cut yourself off at the knees from the onset.

comment What are some way to increase productivity with a sleeping disorder?
I know how long my cycle is: 26.1 hours (+/-20 minutes), determined across three sleep studies over the last decade.

Good suggestions. I tried the first suggestion for awhile, but calendars with auto-timezone translation mucked it up when other people read the events. As for the other suggestion, the GTD method handles most things that don't have a specific time. They become actions and I have a specific program handling those. More and more, it seems like I'm going to have to go back and tell them it won't work, good try, deal.

Anything after 5PM UTC 0 is considered the next day for my team. So if I wake up after that time, whatever work I do is slotted for the next day.

I use GTD for everything non-time-specific, but it and any standard implementation of the calendar is useless in a free-running cycle where one effectively loses time on a daily basis. I have an alarm clock, but it is generally useless. I'm simply do not and can not get tired in the same timeframe you and most the world do in a 24 hour period. My day is closer to 26 hours. This is not a matter of laziness. I'm trying to accomplish a block-schedule that other people can follow: I did a 5-hour block of this here, 1 hour lunch, 4 hours there, etc. And I would still get typical alerts from events.

Because as my career grows, I have garnered increased responsibilities that aren't as quite as free-running as my sleep patterns and I need to explicitly set timeframes to certain recurring tasks that are flexible enough that shifting them say a couple hours won't ruin the project. Basically, other people are going by my schedule now. I can't help that I have a sleeping disorder that doesn't have many effective defenses that won't degrade my performance. But I'm looking for solution that will assist in the process of time-shifting an existing schedule by whenever I wake up.

A simple example: you wake and eat breakfast at 7am, start work at 9am. And that's how it's written in your calendar. But I will wake up at 7am one day, 7:30 the next, and 8 the day after. So my pre-defined schedule is shot when I don't wake up at 7. Meaning I have to re-arrange my schedule to reflect the new start of my day. And if I wake at 2 or 10pm, all alerts prior to that are useless. They aren't at the wrong time in a time-sense, but in an effective-use sense.
