comment The flow phenomena
I know this is not really answering your question, but if the task is menial and doesn't represent a business opportunity, it's screaming to be automated. Even simple things that require human supervision, like replying to customers, can be largely accelerated by the use of templates, reminders and such.

comment How to withstand a highly distractive environment, or else, 'Should I Stay or Should I Go'
Glad you like that. It's easier said than done, though. Social pressure is a bitch!

comment What next after pomodoro technique?
Good point. Also, focus on what matters. Classify items in a 2x2 matrix (important/urgent?). Google "what is the eisenhower method".

comment What approach is good? First getting job done then improve or the other?
My personal opinion is what follows the quote. I have found it in the past that when I optimize things before I have actual data, I normally waste my time. A quick prototype is infinitely better than a perfect plan with no implementation.

comment How can I use the travel time (car driving) efficiently?
Exactly. Or take public transport and work/read. Or at least bike to work so you can stay fit without a gym membership.
