comment Gamification to improve myself
I guess the worry I have with this is that it isn't just about getting tasks done, but about getting important tasks done. Also, tasks can be marked as "done" if you procrastinate enough that completing the task becomes pointless

Hi @minuseSeven. I'm going to have to vote to close this question because it raises far too many issues for the one question. Could you please try to ask one question in each question?

comment Sweeping a wet bathroom floor
This situation usually occurs when we've already mopped the other floors and want to mop this one at the same time, but it is wet (from shower splashes, ect).

@weronika: So, is this site then only about doing "general" stuff more productively, but not specific stuff? I think that the site is already lacking activity - we need to relax a bit more on the scope

comment Can drinking coffee increase productivity?
Just to clarify - this relates to regular coffee consumption. I think the results might be different if we were considering occasional coffee use when needed

Good suggestion. I'm thinking I should try spaced repetition at some point, but not right now

comment How do I train myself to write more carefully?
@Raystafarian: This question isn't quite the same. It isn't about generally improving ones writing skill, but about training oneself to write more carefully

comment How do I speed up turning ideas into text?
@Robert, @Christian: I find it very hard to write something that "sounds right" - I usually spent a lot of time editing before I finally consider it good enough to release

comment How do I speed up turning ideas into text?
The time spent writing is generally only a small portion of the whole. If I wanted to increase my typing speed, I think that rather than switching to another layout, I would just practice more at QWERTY and learn to spell better
