comment Can someone help me speed up my workflow (accessing spreadsheets)
A database is just as flexible (if not moreso) than a spreadsheet application, provided you have the right supporting tools. If you need to, you can export the information for use in a spreadsheet. The answer to this question may help: stackoverflow.com/questions/5509460/… I would be careful about storing the information in CSV format; you need to either use a CSV-specific API, or you need to make sure everything's correctly escaped. On the flipside, you should use parameterized queries when dealing with a database (if you're at the SQL level).

comment How do I get more productive from using keyboard shortcuts?
If you want to jump in the deep end with text editing, try Vim (and vimtutor) for text-only documents (no formatting). vim.sourceforge.net

comment Getting things done in an environment with constant, unavoidable interruptions
There are some things that are more important than work, and you need to know what those are beforehand. e.g., the baby needs food or bathroom; there's a tornado outside; you need to resolve a conflict and NOW is the best time.
