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 What environmental variables are most important to maintaining constant work flow?
This is a really useful answer. I was concerned the question would elicit opinions, but you have given factors that individuals may wish to control.

This is also far too broad a question - entire books have been written on this topic.

comment Dealing with Existential Crisis
This question is both too broad and when it comes down to it, not actually about productivity. Dealing with the crisis is the key factor here - if you deal with it you are back to your normal self.

comment Average learning time for big list of topics
This will entirely depend on your ability to learn. Personally I'd agree with Robert that learning these is utterly infeasible. You could definitely read all those books in 3 months, but your retention... Closed as opinion based.

comment how to come out of self destructive mindset and be productive?
i Shravan, While I think Jeanne's answer cover's off a few of the points you have listed in your post. It is very difficult to understand what you are asking - we recommend you post one question so that it can be answered. You can edit your post to make it clearer.
