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.

John, can you add a brief summary here? It would make this answer even more useful to know at a high level what aspects it covers

comment Doing a lot of things in one day— good or bad?
Tom, the distinction between short and long term memory is well accepted and goid training plans work to ensure short term learning is pushed into long term storage.

comment How to organise the mental and physical chaos in my life?
Because you need to organise yourself, and then use a tool which fits the way you work to take over some of the organisational tasks. Don't pick a tool and expect it to make everything suddenly work.
