I meant the ' if your alarm wakes you from a dream, you're in the middle of a cycle.' part. :)

This looks pretty good - but is it possible to get some references as well?

comment Collaborating Online and enforcing anonymity for members to increase productivity
bear in mind that things like gmail will happily import from another account automatically and will give you a bunch of 'send as' ids.

comment Typos as positive
@THelper - I would say this is about improving communication skills and getting the most out of a corraspondence, possibility with the least about of time... I'd certainly say it was about personal efficiency or personal effectiviness...

comment Clarification need on the Pareto principle as quoted in productivity literature…
I think all of your points are correct - but I suspect I didn't ask the question correctly... I probably should have written the more blunt 'Can the Pareto Principle ever be correctly applied to a sample size of 1 (the self)?'... but It might also be a though that needs more developing before I put it up...

@Rory - Hehe, I have to ask, did it slightly annoy you when you when you saw it? :) (it was unintentional, but the irony is not lost on me...)

comment Is there something where can I throw away my frustration for an individual
+1 Also Worth reading amazon.co.uk/59-Seconds-Think-little-change/dp/0330511602 - which talks about things that have been scientifically shown to work (the writing down) and the things that have been scientifically shown not to (the hitting things, which feels like it's helping, but turns out not to...)

Can you do us a favour - in terms of the overall usefulness of the site for other people? Come back in a week or to to let us know if it's still working... one datapoint is not as good as two...

comment Effective method of thinking beyond the first idea
I find timelimits to be very important when brainstorming - because otherwise I end up wandering off with just the first solution - if I set a timer and know I have to sit there for another 10/15 minutes then that tends to be pretty good for pulling out more alternatives...

As a genuine curiousity. Why is quiting caffeine out of the question?

comment I don't want to study. I don't want to think. I want to have fun
There seam to be a couple of assumptions with this answer that confuse me a little - did the OP say she was living with parents/not paying fees?

comment Why is learning theoretical stuff necessary to be a software engineer?
More embarrassingly I'm sure we should, I've just got no idea how - I'm going to have to learn how this site works soon I think...
