comment Methods for Goal Setting
Good pick! This can also be extended into SMARTER where E is evaluation and R is re-evaluation. See wiki article for more info and references: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMART_criteria

comment Is there any career path related to personal productivity?
There are "Productivity trainer" jobs [google.co.nz/… but not many. Either way, I don't see how such question can yield a specific answer (see Tom's comment)

comment How to avoid night-productivity when it's a must to wake up earlier?
Again, very subjective. As I say what I described works for me well. Let's not argue about subjectivity.

comment How do I teach productivity techniques to kids?
This is not an actual answer but more of a way of thinking about your problem (in line with Tom's answer to make it practical, example-based): ted.com/talks/…

I will argue with warm shower. I have read about (and then experimented with) cold showers before sleep and warm after to help getting to sleep/waking up. The argument is adjustment of body temperature: colder for sleep, warmer for being awake (almost like hibernation in animals). Works for me.

comment Can reading electronic displays be made more comfortable?
ok thanks. I suspect this may be subjective... I often find it easier to concentrate for on-screen reading comparing to paper. Let's see what sort of answers we get.
