comment What would you include in an end-of-day routine?
Hello, is it possible to edit this and describe more about your goals? Right now, this isn't really a good fit for a Q&A site, and there's no criteria for which to rate answers and determine what the best one is. Please take a look at Good Subjective, Bad Subjective for more details. Hope this helps!

comment Introvert to Extrovert in 5 years. How?
daCoda - See Susan Cain's TED Talk: ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts.html Shyness isn't the same as introversion. There are also many introverted people who are super confident and productive. Your lack of understanding of this is precisely why this isn't a Productivity question. Consider reformatting this to focus on a specific problem you're facing and how you can become more productive. Hope this helps! :)

This doesn't really answer the question. Answers should ideally be more than just a one-line answer. Can you elaborate? See How to Answer for more details.

Are you sure you don't mean "12:00 AM" The PM/AM switch happens at 12, not 1. 12 PM is lunch time.

Hi TRdH. Welcome to Personal Productivity SE. This is a great first post!

comment Should I use pomodoro breaks to work on personal tasks?
From what I've read, your rule is the rule. The point of the pomodoro technique is to force yourself to take a break while also forcing yourself to work productively during the "on" time. I tried this approach yesterday to knock out some stuff I've been putting off and it worked really well.

comment What method(s) can I undertake to ensure I get the most possible information from a book when I read it?
Those people quoting from books likely memorized that as part of a speech. It would surely be impressive if they could just pull random information out of their heads, but I seriously doubt that wasn't planned/prepared in advance.

comment How can I minimize the time I spend preparing food without sacrificing quality or greatly increasing cost?
@DennisS. - Asking a question about productivity, as it applies to cooking, could be on-topic, but the question has to be about the process. Simply asking folks to list foods that are easy/fast to make isn't a question about productivity, that's the equivalent of "Favorite foods for programmers", see Good Subjective, Bad Subjective for more details. Also, this post could be edited so it's more objective. For instance, remove the opinion and put the question in the body too. Hope this helps!

comment In which circumstances are the different mobile computers most productive?
Hi Celeritas, con7e is right. Different people use stuff in different ways. What do you think about editing this to focus on a specific task you're interested in? When it comes to comparing the productivity of different devices, certain tasks are indeed easier or harder depending on the form factor. As it stands, it seems like there's a lot of variables to consider here that make this tough to answer. Hope this helps!

comment Free 'developer activity tracker' software for increasing productivity of development
That's the thing, @RoryAlsop, is a product recommendation question can sometimes be made to work with a great answer and then moderating the rest to keep out the spam and one-liners. ;) If any further posts get added to this that aren't as thorough as Arun's, I'd be tempted to flag those for removal instead of the question. :)

comment Free 'developer activity tracker' software for increasing productivity of development
Oh interesting! On Project Management Stack Exchange, whenever we get questions like this, it's usually people trying to avoid actually doing project management and hoping to mindlessly run their team, so I just assumed you were doing the same. :)

comment Free 'developer activity tracker' software for increasing productivity of development
What are you trying to accomplish exactly? Software development isn't exactly a manufacturing process, and if you try to run it like one your team might fall flat on its face. ;)

comment Resetting ones' whole biological clock?
Addiction? To melatonin? Naah. Impossible. They're not sleeping pills. Melatonin is already produced by your body; it's natural. Also, so true about the clock reset strategy of pulling an all-nighter. +1

comment Getting Annoyed by workmate
Everyone will have an opinion, especially in a large community. One way to address that issue is to generalize your answers + follow the main points in the faq so that any reasonable concerns/doubts are a non-issue. I can't speak for everyone, but I think with a little editing I'd be inclined to reverse my downvote, if you're up for it. Good luck! :)

comment Getting Annoyed by workmate
While a great quote, your post isn't really an answer to the question. This would be acceptable as an aside at the bottom of an explanation, but anecdotes themselves are really not what Stack Exchange is about. Consider making an edit to your post to improve it, or delete it and leave it as a helpful comment to the question. Also, see How to Answer for further guidance. Hope this helps!

This seems more like a Workplace SE question. We get a lot of these on that site.

comment How can I deal with others who have different personal productivity goals?
You need more than one circle of friends. When you have backup, it's easier to break from one herd and join the other when you need to.
