For each of those datapoints and apps, could you rank their importantness and effictiveness?

Can you say a bit more about the context in which you've been asked to work on intuition?

This sounds like the Pomodoro technique, which there are apps for.

comment Dilemma of spending time with family members, watching TV and doing something fruitful?
As a possibly unrelated aside, I am reminded of people I have known that have had dreams and desires, but didn't have the self-discipline, and maybe self-confidence, to follow through and do what they needed to do to mature and improve. Sometimes it easier to just hang out.

comment Dilemma of spending time with family members, watching TV and doing something fruitful?
Families may be generally more important than hobbies, but the op indicates that these are things that are important to him. (I also have a sense that calling them hobbies, he's minimized them a bit.) I agree with the notion of planning and scheduling time for these activities and for family. I think by doing so your time spent on each can be more efficiently spent.

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.

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?
