comment How shall I study now…?
Please note the sentence in my answer that is boldface. And above that I said that it could be that, not that it is that.

comment How to organize life? A bunch of specific details
Carry around a few index cards held together with a binder clip, and a writing instrument. When something occurs to you, write it down. That way you have a record, and when you get a handle on a larger system, you can funnel those captured ideas through it to decide if/when/how you want to act on them.

comment How to organize life? A bunch of specific details
You're welcome. :) Sometimes I miss really badly by answering the question I think needs an answer, rather than the one they actually ask, but I'm glad I didn't in this case.

+1 for the wrap-up-the-problem alarm.

comment Reminder services: do they exist?
@JanDoggen good point, and I edited my answer. But it's not necessarily bad if the accountability partner is proactive, either. I've seen that work, too.

comment Writing on paper first then digitise to PC
It gets down to how much your creative process depends on putting actual pen to actual paper. My wife (who writes novels, among the other things she does extremely well) does part of her thinking in paper journals, and she's convinced it makes a difference in that part of her creative process. For that situation, a tool that's pen and paper at its core would be a shorter bridge to cross. But, if you're ambivalent toward pen and paper, then it matters less what form the tool is in.

Outsource the task. Hire / marry someone to cook for you.

comment Getting Annoyed by workmate
Thanks for the response. I do think it answers the question, though. Some answers are explicit; others are meant to be reflective. Mine is the latter. I guess I should be glad that (as of now) three people thought it was helpful rather than reflect on the two that didn't. Perhaps I'm not following my own advice. :)

Two downvotes, zero explanations.

comment How to sort out and where to archive browser bookmarks?
+1 I like the idea of the different kinds of tags. One thing I'd be a little concerned about, though, is outsourcing too much to 3rd-party services without redundancy. Delicious can go away tomorrow if it wants to.

comment Is there a way to schedule a break for long meetings in Google Calendar?
Sometimes rejecting the premise of the question is exactly what is needed. Sorry that isn't the case here. Best wishes finding an answer.

comment Is it possible to train to sleep less?
@tehnyit You're not foregoing sleep altogether, but you're building up a deficit that's not getting repaid. You're looking to do 6 hours every night then 5.5 hours, presumably every night. At some point this will catch up with you, and it might be catastrophic. That was my point.
