comment How to measure improvement progress in a soft skill?
Charisma is a learnable skill like any other. The most charismatic people I know now were nerds/introverts who were forced to be charismatic in their careers. And you can measure things like social status and people's reactions. Titles, status symbols, social media followers and likes, measuring your call logs, counting body language reactions like content or disgust, counting awkward conversations. A lot of these are horrible measures, but people unconsciously do it. If people think gold cufflinks means +1 Charisma, go ahead and put it as a goal.

@shimuno One thing you could do is check yourself for that habit at a certain point in time. So you could say that by December 2015, it should be automatic that I smile when I'm on the phone.

Isn't self-help part of the scope? It flies close to personal productivity as it's about goalsetting.

comment How to click Web links with a keyboard?
Can you give a specific example of what you're trying to do? Browsers have a long list of hotkeys... I personally switch tabs with CTRL+TAB, and scroll with two fingers on my laptop's touchpad. And there's also the Windows voice commands. These are obvious solutions, so what about them aren't working out for you?

comment How can I improve reading speed and comprehension?
Comprehension at faster speeds can be trained. It's the same way a race car driver can drive several hundreds km/h with a very low probability of getting into an accident. But the training requires forcing yourself to get used to reading at faster paces. It involves being able to visualize words while reading at high speeds. The brain stores images far better than words, and one needs to practice changing key points in the text into images.

comment What are good learning techniques? (for lifelong learners)
If you want to memorize a shopping list... say, meat, fish, Nutella, you can even store all three in a single room. I'd memorize it as an angry bull (meat) chewing into a smelly fish (fish) in my kitchen sink, while a anthropomorphic nut stands at a counter, chopping up chocolate bars (Nutella). The more absurd your imagination, the more detail and senses you integrate, the more likely you'll remember it.
