Thank you. edit However, your answer here still does not provide substance. To make it a truly great answer you could summarize the points raised in the linked resource in your own words so a user here could get the idea of what you are suggesting just by reading your answer and then following the link if further reading is desired.

comment What FUTURE-PROOF software for building & managing a personal BIG knowledge base?
I'm merely raising a discussion point rather than blatantly suggesting to close the question right off the bat. As I say I'm personally very interested in this question but I am unsure if it belongs on this site.

imo this is a software question and not a productivity question (though very interesting)

This is a great question - I have the same problem, but is it on topic here?

Good comment @Grant. Just clarifying the question.

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

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...

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].

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
