comment How can I teach myself to think more innovatively?
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.

Could you ask them for links and add them to your answer?

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.

I voted to close this question as a duplicate. I also gave an answer to your original question. If you want to add to your original you can suggest an edit to it).

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).

comment Recommended notes with tags management software
Absolutely this, because nvALTs way to search/create new notes is a killer feature IMO. I recommend nvALT, sync to simplenote and use Flick Note for Android (buy the premium version, the free version is sluggish because of the ads, the premium version works just fine). Also learn how to use markdown (also useful here on stackexchange, on reddit or Github).

comment search based mind map
Suggested wording for the question (I don't want to edit it in case you mean something different): "I use mind maps to summarize knowledge during study. Do you have suggestions for mind mapping software with a good search function?"

comment Why do I start wasting time when I am excited about learning some technical stuff?
If you search this website for the "procrastination" tag, you might find some people with similar problems and some solutions.

comment Hierarchy tree editor
If you want something "like a file system" why not use a file system? Is there a special reason why you want a single file? What about a directory structure in a mountable container file?

comment what do you do when you are stuck at programming and you don't have access to internet?
Fun fact: As soon as I read the question I thought about migrating it to programmers.stackexchange.com

comment What is the best wiki to install and run locally?
@JeanneBoyarsky: IMO this question is quite on-topic here, since it asks for a suggestion for a piece of productivity software. So this is very similar to all the questions dealing with software for the pomodoro technique or todo lists. For this reason I would be fine with this question being reopened, if other users agree.

comment What is the best wiki to install and run locally?
I have Evernote installed, but I don't use it much anymore. I tested if I could create links to other notes (important for a personal wiki), and it is a little bit awkward IMO. However, the sharing/syncing options of EN are great, as well as the ton of apps for all sorts of mobile devices.
