comment How can I block an application such that I myself cannot use it?
Good answer. I'll try to find programs like that. Useful note. I just put a picture of my wife by my mouse. It helps a lot.

Oh. Could you recommend some nice reading material? I loved Anki at first, but now the pace is too slow. It develops very slow--it's practically unsupported.

@RoryAlsop On-topic: "fighting procrastination by getting energetic and motivated". Proven effective, too.

comment How do I efficiently use my daily learning limit?
Recently, I've been trying to disconnect from the material world more and more. The less I am attached to things--fussing around with things--, the more I am able to enter into the creative space in my mind and develop richer memories. It's been very useful. I picked the concept up from old Confucian readings and themes in their art. I can create a broader mental space, and I can remember things more clearly.

@AdamGent It needs better documentation.

You should look into some file managers like Xyplorer and Xplorer Lite 2. I think that the one feature missing is a save state feature, but I haven't used them. Version management would need to be handled by a different program.

@Gabber Git comes to mind, also. I use bitbucket. It might help. It seems like you have something very specific in mind, though. Your only option may be to build it.

comment How can I communicate with others to help them consider alternative viewpoints?
I don't have a research pallet specifically for that, but I've been volunteering as a hand searcher for four years. There's a lot out there to discredit individual points. If you would like to discuss specific things, we should go to chat. I think Covey makes a good point. I also recently asked about why people become frustrated when they are forced to question their beliefs. Someone told me it was because it causes them to challenge the sources of the beliefs. He'd taken that info from A Course in Miracles. Anyway, I agree with some of the points in How to Win Friends.... :)

comment How can I communicate with others to help them consider alternative viewpoints?
Thanks. I'm kind of hard up against the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People because I don't think he's ever written a book, or even a passage, based on solid research, or anything other than his own opinion.... It's easy to discredit many of the points, and actually show that they will make situations worse, rather than better, on multiple levels. It's nice to have the other resources, to look into, and I appreciate the clean formatting, though. So, thank you very much for your response.

While subjective, I feel that it is an important assertion that peoples productivity improves when they find remorse. People without remorse are hopelessly trapped at the lowest levels of society. There have been studies showing sharp increases in anti-social behavior as peoples' position in society go down. They are correlative, and there are many outliers. I am familiar with some additional research among prison populations and clinical populations but none among other populations. I do not have a research pallet, though; so, the methods cannot be examined thoroughly. I'll search for'm
