comment Does using your bed only for sleep result in more valuable sleep?
This mental stimulus seems negligible to factors that have a much greater effect on sleep : health, exercise, comfort, external stimuli, stress, caffeine, alcohol.

comment How can I use the travel time (car driving) efficiently?
An interesting concept; I often find when I drive without audio distractions, my mind tends to wander, recall, and think.

comment How to separate working environments in a single computer?
Potentially look into a multiple-desktop program that gives you a large number of customization and new "desktops" to switch to- using a new one for each project.

comment Boosting Energy
I like to take a complex b-vitamin, fall asleep, and wake up after it has begun digesting. A lot of sustained energy after that!

comment How to start as a customer-hunter?
I think this question belongs in Workplace. If you changed it so the question was how you can change your attitudes on refusal, PPSE could help you out.

comment How to withstand a highly distractive environment, or else, 'Should I Stay or Should I Go'
Close your room door and put on some noise-cancelling headphones. No interruptions == no external distractions

comment How to improve one's 'learning' and 'understanding' capabilities?
I think you answer your question in your question. Playing chess makes you a better chess player. Learning more will make you a better learner. There must also be a level of commitment and desire- we pay attention to things we deep-down want the most.

comment Why am I not able to motivate myself to code?
I think motivation can be given to you by someone else; but it is a different kind of motivation and it is much less powerful. My example: - Seeing a cool piano cover on youtube might give you temporary motivation to learn the piano, learn that cover, or do your own. - Deciding that you want to become a better piano player and acting on that personal decision will give you the power to endure through the learning process and continue.

I get this a lot when approaching a new module. I am in the same boat as you in searching for similar success-minded people. That's why I enjoy PPSE. People come here to improve themselves :D

comment Is there software to log tasks daily?
Notepad++ or Excel. No need for new applications when you can achieve it with what you have!

comment My open office is not effective in increasing my productivity, how can I counter this?
I have the same problem even though I have cubical walls. I am right near a major walkway and with people walking through it all the time and talking to one another, it is a big distraction. Using noise cancelling headphones helps!
