comment Task-oriented file manager
The big problem is: I have no such control over my system (sadly) thus the best thing would be a standard user application to create a separate environment for every task

comment Task-oriented file manager
I use Np++ from a long time and you are teaching me things I didn't even imagine :) big problem: usually my work is not programming related, so I can use a good text file manager, but I'll probably need to version control/edit/manage different types of file. Moreover what if a document (many documents in my case) is required by more than one project? I understand that, hacking it a bit, np++ would be able to handle this, unfortunately I can't afford to invest time in doing that.

comment Task-oriented file manager
This is a good start (and +1), but is not sufficient: I'd also like to keep the status of my edits: a timeline would be great, versioning would be the best. I know this can't easily be integrated with the OS, but that's what I need after all.

comment How to implement a behaviour of discipline
This is a good solution... which brings a big problem. See the blank spot on your calendar? That day you didn't/couldn't stick with your method? for not-so-disciplined people this is enough demotivation to want to stop or try something else.

comment How to deal with dreaded tasks?
+1 In my personal experience, after getting used to the rythm of pomodoro technique, I found that tasks that left me brain-dead existed no more. I hope that one day this will work the same also for you!

comment Time management problem with pomodoro technique
A truly good thing about pomodoro technique are breaks. When the brain is in the flow we follow a precise path, we simply don't see better alternatives in our work because our brain is focused. When I'm programming, pomodoro rings and I take a break. When I return from breaks I see many new possibilities in what minutes before seemed a single choice task. I'd rather stick with breaks.

Btw why pandora and not pomodoro? Spell correction issues?

comment Time management problem with pomodoro technique
I have a todo list, however pomodoro technique's strength is in that it allows you to have atomic units of time to concentrate without distraction. This is why I wanted to know also if there are other time management techniques better suitable for my situation
