I manage my time poorly when it comes to personal matters. In the workplace, I am rather solid.

I am of a mindset that if you have time to piss and moan about not having time, you have time.

In a sense I don't either, I have a dual monitor set up, so even when I am not watching Anime on my Roku and am playing some game on my computer, CR is usually up on the other monitor... I don't have the luxury of someone dragging my off my computer though, only thing getting me off the computer is usually food...

You people and all your things to do. I just have too much free time on my hands it starts to get boring. I just spend my days hanging out with friends and sitting at the computer. I'm actually happy if I have something actual stuff to do and this is coming from a guy who's going high school and graduating as a electrician at the same time lol

Best practices order of priorities:

1) Do the things you have to do first.
2) Do the things you should do second.
3) Do the things you want to do thereafter.

Actual order of things:

1) Do the things you want to do first.
2) Do the things you have to do at the last minute.
3) Put off things you need to do until they become have to do.

usually I prefer having the automated hours tracking tool for the time tracking and management. The tool is specifically meant for the time tracking along with the task management, project management, expense management and many other business related stuffs that could help lead a successful life.

In my life it is a little bit more like this,but overall i agree


Actual order of things:

1) Do the things you want to do first
2) Find someone to do the things you supposedly agreed to do for you for a Guest Pass or Gift a CR membership
3) Put off things you need to do until they it would be too late to do it anyway

Still working on it, but by forcing myself into having a very busy lifestyle (three jobs and all that), I'm slowly learning to prioritize and follow a set schedule. I still hate having a routine so I deviate or switch things up every so often, just to keep myself from ultimately getting bored.

I also set alarms for important things (including drinking water ) so I don't forget.

I don't.
I know I have to manage my time well to get things done, I know prioritizing my hobbies and interests over acads is a no-no, but I still procrastinate. I procrastinate and cry every time afterwards whining about how I should have done it earlier and whatnot.

I guess after a while I got used to it. I can estimate how much I can get a task done in a rush and mess around 'till then. It's not a good feeling to rush but there are times when I think better under pressure.

These are the steps I usually take. The first couple of steps may seem a little obvious:

1) Make a list of things to do.
Include due dates and how long you think it will take you. Try to be conservative with your estimates so you aren't scrambling later.

2) Prioritize.
Decide what's most important or due first.

3) Break up your tasks.
A lot of the time we procrastinate because we're feeling overwhelmed. Instead of listing "Finish report due on Friday", try "Finish outline for report due on Friday", or "Work on report for one hour". If it's cleaning you could try, "start a load of laundry", or "organize my desk". For a research paper I had to work on recently I had broken the steps into: read and annotate primary literature, look up unknown terms and supplementary materials, write draft outline, write intro paragraph, write body of paper, write concluding paragraph, revise and include sources, etc. Now the task at hand will seem a lot less daunting and I'm much more likely to start it before it becomes urgent. It also gives you more direction when you're working on your task so you can focus on one thing at a time.

4) Reward.
It might sound silly, but rewarding yourself between tasks can really motivate you to work on the next one. Rather than sitting down and watching a few episodes in a row tell yourself you have to work on something on your list before you can watch anything else. Finish one task, watch one episode.

The trick is to find a way to approach your tasks without overwhelming yourself. Giving yourself a somewhat immediate reward should encourage you to follow through. One book I read talked about doing 20 minute rotations of tasks (set timer for 20 minutes for task A, then switch to task B and restart the timer after it goes off). We aren't designed to focus on any one thing for much longer than that, so you could try that if you find you aren't being very productive with longer tasks.
