comment In Pomodoro Technique - How to deal w/ really quick interruptions
Internal interruptions are the non action interruptions. The author is very strict about that in the book. When you have such an interruption you mark it as an interruption and go on. When you stop doing what you were doing because of your internal interruption you void the pomodoro

comment Task-oriented file manager
I ended up using this. To keep the status of a project i put a "Status.txt" file in the tabble related to that project. It works fine, I can manage my projects right there. It's not a comprehensive task oriented file manager, it lacks organizer and reminders, but I can address those problems with additional tools.

comment How do I concentrate, feel comfortable and be productive?
Agree with @HLGEM, the environment should be organized in a way that allows you to work well and to have everything you need by hand, not necessarily a tidy place.

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.

+1 Hey, you described an alpha version polyphasic sleep :) You might be interested in some readings about that!

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
