comment Meaning of working hard
Yes, you will most likely need to work hard to achieve that, both in terms of long hours and working with full effort (as Juha Untinen describes in his answer below). But hard work will not be a guarantee for success.

comment Meaning of working hard
Welcome to Personal Productivity! I appreciate your question, but it is rather subjective. It's very questionable if working hard always leads to success. Also, how do you define success? It it being rich, is it being happy, is it becoming famous?

Welcome to Personal Productivity! I agree with your answer that anxiety is a possible cause, but could you elaborate on it? What makes you think this is the problem and not something else? How would mindfulness help?

comment what is the effect of communication on productivity
Welcome to Personal Productivity! Communicating with people plays an important role in many different situations (work, at home, driving). Also, there are many forms of communication (talking, email, body language, etc.). As it is your question is way too broad to be answerable here. I suggest you narrow it done and focus on 1 specific setting.

How do you know that "This will increase my productivity at least 3 times as much"? If I remember correctly brain-computer interfaces that exist today generally have an accuracy in the range of 85-97%, so you'll still have to correct errors regularly. Eye tracking devices may be more suitable here.

Welcome to Personal Productivity! I've edited your answer and tried to fix some of the grammar. Please check if I kept the meaning of your answer. Also, I do not completely understand how saying 'la la la' will speed up your talking. Can you elaborate?

comment What environmental variables are most important to maintaining constant work flow?
The exact answer will probably depend on the type of work you are trying to do. I suspect you mean mental work in an office or home environment?

I noticed you are recommending Anki a lot in several of your answers. If you are just a happy user that's fine, but note that this site requires you to mention any affiliation.

comment Consistent Productivity
I think everyone needs a 'chill-out' period from time to time. If you are always productive, always working towards your goals then you don't have time to regain energy, let everything you've done sink in and really think about if the goals you've set for yourself are still the ones you want to achieve. Just embrace those less productive periods and use them as a time for reflection.

comment How do you appreciate yourself more?
You say "it seems intuitive", the problem is that we want facts here. To quote this article "Job performance in adults is sometimes related to self-esteem, although the correlations vary widely, and the direction of causality has not been established." It may well be that being productive leads to a higher self-esteem.
