comment What are the general steps to increase your IQ?
Then again, practicing for specific IQ tests will only make you good at taking IQ tests. It will not improve your real life skills that you need to solve problems that haven't been solved before.

comment How can people advise me to throw away my 'to do' list?
If a task is from 2-3 years ago, then I seriously doubt it is really that necessary? I would probably create a new, much shorter todo-list, and only add things that are really needed - perhaps limit it to 20 most critical entries? Only once they are done, add the next 20 to your active todo list. Repeat this until the backlog is empty.

comment What should one do to achieve something big in life?
If money is no issue, what would you do first? It's very likely that is also what you should aim for now. Find which things you need to accomplish to do the main goal, and then work on each thing.

comment How to keep my motivation alive?
How about to start your own business? With a PhD in aim, you most likely possess plenty of the skills needed to give it a good shot.

comment How do I find a decent hobby?
Music demands quite a lot of focus :) It's probably not the best for relaxation. I've been playing instruments for soon 20 years, and playing in bands for 15 years...

comment How do I keep working if I'm going to die anyway?
There are a lot of passion jobs that will not earn you enough to even live a basic life (art in particular), so in a way you must always do something you don't want to do, just to survive in a world where having money is mandatory. It was better before, when you could just build a house yourself into a place you want, without needing any permits, payments, and such :)

comment How can I eliminate fear of phone calling?
I think the root cause might be a lack of confidence in oral communication. In a phone call, it is the only form you have, so if you have trouble communicating something with just speech, you might get anxiety from getting it wrong unintentionally, or being catastrophically misunderstood because of communication problems. In an email, you can think everything through with plenty of time and no pressure, but on the phone, there is a very short time frame to formulate your thoughts clearly.

comment Why is most work unpleasant?
The problems begin when your passion is in a field with very low salary/profitability, such as music or art. Then you have to settle for a less-pleasing day-job :)

comment problems with programming
And one more: A class is nothing more than a blueprint on how to build identical houses, or in other words, instances of the blueprint/object. Each house will look the same externally upon creation, but they are unique items among themselves, which means things happening to the unique instance will only affect that house. So if santa claus brought down a lot of chimney dust in one house, that same dust will not be all over EVERY house in the neighbourhood - unless it was designed to happen :)

comment problems with programming
Just a quick tip, even though it's not really the main point: Think of everything as a real world item. What traits do children inherit from their parent objects? They look the same and will likely behave the same. Some things will be different, like a new skill that parents do not have (read: a different method in an inherited object). More strictly in programming: The child will always have everything the parent has, plus something more. And a complex object will be comprised of multiple subsystems (classes) - the heart is one object, the brain is one object, the hands, etc.
