comment Avoiding procrastination on university assignments
And I assume that current situation isn't giving you the best result? The reason I'm clarifying is because in the university situation I always found myself performing a lot better when I worked to a tight deadline even though I could have done things in advance.

IMO this is even a bigger productivity killer because employees will spend times on workaround to get to Facebook/Twitter etc

comment Has research been done between messiness on a desk and productivity?
You'd be surprised how many correlations were found in places where nobody should really have been looking...

A comment more than an answer this one. Though very valid!

comment Has research been done between messiness on a desk and productivity?
Great question. I am a "messy desk person" and keep hearing about clearing it to be more productive. But I find my mess helpful at times. I think I might dig for that research we are after here...

Great point. Though it'd be good to see a "fancier" answer too with actual techniques being suggested :)

comment Do ergonomic keyboards/mice provide significant productivity improvement over “average” counterparts?
It's a good answer but on a tangent I think. What I had in mind as proof was something like: "ergonomic" keyboard reduces time to do/type [xyz] by [123]; "ergonomic" mouse allows [quicker/better/stronger] performance in [xyz].
