comment Introvert to Extrovert in 5 years. How?
Following up on the comment by @jmort253, I'd recommend reading Susan Cain's book "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking". It'll definitely make you feel better about your introverted ways. Heck, check out the amazon comments for the book and it's like a mass introverts coming-out party!

comment Why am I not making money and success even If I am organised, motivated and hard-working?
I think that being intelligent/smart is not a straight-line path to making money. I'd even say there are lots of smart people out there living below the poverty line. I won't go as far as saying they are mutually exclusive, but I've met a number of people, "C" students, no degree, who've done well (often in sales/marketing). A variety of factors play into life, including luck.

comment What is the best way to approach large tasks, such as reading scientific papers, that require intense focus?
Nice call, hellectronic. You can also find such similar items such as ocean waves, etc.

Out of curiosity, do you use both your thumbs, and do you use thumbs for anything more than the space bar?

comment What to do when tired instead of surfing the internet?
@HLGEM The question was not about how to go from tired to fried and exhausted! :-) Although, yeah, pretty worthwhile overall.

Key phrase: "...it takes a lot of practice..." Might as well start now ;-)

Do you mean non-fiction books that will help you understand what might be the underlying issues and offer techniques and suggestions, or more like fiction books that might inspire and open you?

comment Advantages of a label printer
Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. I put labels on the top of my spice bottles so I no longer need to pull out and look at the face of every bloody bottle just to find the one I need at the moment!
