comment How effective is the Dvorak keyboard at improving productivity?
There's a variable not considered in your analysis, and that's the effect of same-hand sequences versus alternate hand typing sequences. Many, if not most English-language words result in long same-hand sequences on a qwerty keyboard, and alternating hand patterns on Dvorak.

comment Is temptation-killing a healthy mode of improving productivity?
Sounds like a fast-track to burnout. Be careful, and remember there becomes a point where diminishing returns on work start to be exponential. It's possible to work for 20 hours and get less done than someone who's only working for 8.
