I have been managing international teams on global improvement programmes for FTSE and Fortune 100 companies for the last 10 years or so, and have a pretty good grasp on managing productivity from myself and teams of up to 100 - but still loads to learn.

Got my Prince2 foundation, and familiar with it through various public sector contracts.

I am a long term member of Mensa, the high IQ society, and head up two professional bodies in Scotland: ISACA and the Institute of Information Security Professionals.

Have founded two consultancies, and run large teams for two global professional services firms - so have an excellent view of the balance required at both ends.

Tend to look at the bigger picture, rather than the benefits of a specific tool.

comment How to deal with unreliable technology?
Avoiding them is a technical question - which is off topic here, as Jeanne pointed out. Minimising your pain and grief by maximising your productivity in the down time is on topic.

comment How to cancel out caffeine's effects on sleep?
There are an unlimited number of reasons. While there are a tiny percentage of people who do need extra help in the chemical stimulus department, it is unlikely.

comment How can I remain productive when working long hours?
Justin - I would assume it was moved because it was not wanted on programmers. The productivity community here has programmers as well as a wide range of other individuals and this question is really not about programming, so I would wait and see what answers you get.

Also useful: get a monitor with a high refresh rate - this reduces tiredness and eyestrain

Read this answer on skeptics - it references the commonly accepted fact that sleep requirement does in fact decrease with age: skeptics.stackexchange.com/a/10673/619

Don't let that be possible then. Get an extra loud alarm clock and put it in the next room

comment maintaining productivity through disillusionment
Can you explain what you mean by disillusionment - do you mean your job isn't giving you what you need? Or are you not achieving something in your daily life? Or something else?

comment Is there something where can I throw away my frustration for an individual
+1 Totally agree. Don't do anything when in this frustration - wait until calm, so you don't regret it later. Useful activities can include a good workout. I like to go for a run or play some loud rock guitar if I have encountered a major frustration during my day - it really helps!

comment How do you act confident?
Excellent answer - a great positive is to get a 'soul jar' which your friends can populate with positive statements about you. When you feel less confident, read the contents of the jar - it sounds very uplifting.
