comment Laptop Addiction with Videos - Unstoppable due to programming
You can search for the "procrastination" tag on this site or look into the pomodoro technique to get started with your tasks.

comment How to write equations involving different sized symbols neatly in notes? What kind of paper to use?
How about blank paper or paper with light grey dots (like dottedpaper.com/download/dotted.pdf)? With enough practice you can write straight enough and are not restricted on how to big your letters are.

comment How does a software developer will become most successful person in his professional lfe
I voted to close you other question, because I think career advice that is that specific is off-topic here. Unfortunately programmers.stackexchange.com tends to think that career advice is also offtopic there (meta.stackexchange.com/questions/110852/…), so I don't have a good place for your question. My advice would be to think about your current strengths and areas where you have to develop your skills (maybe ask coworkers or your boss). Then investigate how to improve in these areas.

comment Alternative methods of tagging to organize thoughts?
Another tip for nvAlt/notationalVelocity/ResophNotes: Always chose the setting to have one txt file per note in a folder. This way you can easily edit the notes in another editor, sync them using dropbox, add notes with scripts. I also sync my notes with Simplenote.com and use FlickNote on my Android Device (perfomance of the app is great once you buy the premium key and get rid of ads).

comment Alternative methods of tagging to organize thoughts?
@Dallas: Resophnotes is said to be very similar to notational velocity and runs on Windows: resoph.com/ResophNotes/Welcome.html Also: +1 to keword search instead of tagging. I help this process by adding a "keywords: ..." line to reference files sometimes to add additional keywords that may not be present in the text (e.g. because they are not in the same language or synonyms)

comment Does military background enhance productivity?
@vprisivko: True that. I suppose I'm biased since I opted out of my military service for ethical reasons (a right which the German constitution granted me), but the anecdotal evidence I gave means to give an additional information how the German military is not educating towards efficiency.

comment Does military background enhance productivity?
Actually most fellow Germans think back to their mandatory service time as a time that went to waste and was filled with senseless orders that had the purpose of killing time.

If find that article again, it would be useful if you could add the link.

comment Allotting time for unforeseen circumstances
I edited the link in your comment. Creating this kind of link is easy using the button (chain link symbol) in the answer editor. Or you can directly write markdown syntax, if you are that kind of guy :3

comment How to calm yourself before meditation?
I edited your answer to render your answer better. Stackexchange uses markdown syntax. There, the # sign is used to create headings, but you can escape them like this \# to use them like regular characters (it's the same with asterisks or other special chars). You can look at the edit by clicking on the "edited x minutes ago" over my username and see what I changed.

comment How to cope with “idea overflow”?
+1 for GTD. I store ideas for projects there and am relieved because they are safe for now. After some time I review the ideas and notice: They were not so good after all, so I combine them, merge them into others or just kill them off.

comment What are the (dis)advantages of Mindmap software?
I don't get why you don't like freemind. I like how you can enter things quickly onces you learn only 2-3 keyboard commands.

comment Why is learning theoretical stuff necessary to be a software engineer?
For transparency: I voted to close this question because I agree with Joe: this would fit better on programmers.stackexchange.com. IDK if we should migrate this question.

comment Is there anything similar to TRIZ known outside of Russia for improving personal productivity?
Welcome on this stackexchange! You mention a few websites, if you have the links to them you can edit the answer to add those (use the "link" tool in toolbar).

comment A time-management watch with alarms, timers and vibration?
I'm pretty sure that displaying calendar reminders will be a basic function of the pebble watch (or every other smart watch out there), so creating calendar events on your phone (or in your browser) will work for most of the non-random stuff.

comment Simple program with subtasks
I had a look a the introduction video and it does indeed look like OP will be happy with this web service. Bonus: As a web service, you can use it also on your mobile phone. I personally would prefer a local app, but thats a matter of taste.

comment Task Management Application with task dependencies
Since you already are aware of taskwarrior go ahead and give it a try: There is a tutorial and even a video tutorial which should bring you up to speed fairly quickly. The only downside IMO is that the Android version seems to take forever to arrive...

comment Todo/Task/Self-organizer with offline access for Linux
Writing this as a comment, since it is not a real answer: Unfortunately the Android client of taskwarrior is not done yet, until this awesome tool for the command line is stuck on Desktop platforms (but it syncs via Dropbox or ssh).
