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.

Chris - this wall of text doesn't actually answer the question, which is how the OP can switch without losing productivity. Can you please re-read the question and edit your answer accordingly.

comment How can I become free from the pulling force of thoughts and focus on Meditation?
hmmm - that other question is structured rather better and has some answers which do seem to be on topic. I'll close this as a dupe of that one and see what happens.

This has nothing to do with productivity (see meta.stackexchange.com/questions/14470/… for some guidance)

comment Time for learning to code
I'd have to agree with Max - food is one of the most important things on your list, a point made by doctors, sports coaches, life coaches, physios etc. Remember, you can study and eat at the same time!

invaluable doesn't mean what you think it means. It means valuable (I know - English is funny like that) - what you meant was value-less
