comment How to improve one's 'learning' and 'understanding' capabilities?
As 'mental power boost' and 'cleverness' are both subjective, and if I understood you correctly, you should go with "How to improve one's learning capabilities?".

Quoting the faq: "You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page."

comment How to profit from quitting gaming? (aka how to overcome the quitter's anxiety?)
Also, I'm noticing that gaming was just a way to relieve myself from my already present anxiety, so I need to work something out to fight that feeling, and CBT may be the way to go, so I'll look deeper into it, thanks. On what concerns making a game out of the TODOs, I gave "don't break the chain" a try once before quitting games, but failed because of my lack of compromise. Maybe I'll give it another try now. And man, I wish there were an android version for Epic Win...it looks neat.

It is indeed going well. The urge to play games is finally fading out of me. I found myself to be a long time structured procrastinator, only I'm not harvesting it's full power, given that my usual procrastinator hideout is turning out my room.

I did try to limit my gaming time a few times before, but it always ended crashing up whenever I had a bad day, sat in front of the big screen, opened up some game and told myself "I need this, just today". And so it all went back to the beginning. Maybe that goes with my lack of self control but, anyway, I'd recommend anyone who is trying to play less games to quit playing them at all. My point is: Gaming, although fun, is not constructive, so you may as well spend your time in something fun AND constructive. All it takes is getting used to get the fun out of something else than games.

Yeah...the problem seems to be directly related to the sense of accomplishment of activities. Even if I take on a small personal project I don't feel as quickly rewarded as I'd be by playing a game or such. I'll give GTD a try.
