comment Too lazy to do programming?
I think this is a great answer. It is essential to accept that work is work. At the same time, changing language, external motivation etc. can help things along considerably.

comment How to deal with vague tasks?
The best way to determine if something is readable and understandable is to get someone to read and understand it. If nobody else is available, you'll have to do it yourself. So the specific tasks might be, (1) attempt to find reader or (2) read through work and identify problems. There is no magic formula for judging clarity, but with experience you'll learn about the general principles.

comment How do I set aside time for leisurely reading?
Could you increase your time on the subway? I've never been to NYC, but if it is anything like the London Tube you could travel the wrong way a couple of stops and then go back the right way again.

comment Trying to be an early raiser
As a general rule, if you want to wake up 3 hours earlier, you're going to have to get to bed (and to sleep) 3 hours earlier.

comment How do you Unlearn things?
You can't actually unlearn things... but you can learn new things that make old ones redundant. For example, you can't unlearn how to ride a bicycle, but you can choose to take the bus instead. So, don't try to overcome unhelpful habits by focusing on how to get rid of them. Instead, put your energy into developing new habits that replace the unhelpful ones.

Why are you working on 10 projects rather than focusing on 1 at a time?
