make a to-do list and set lots of short and intermediate goals, in addition to a few longer-term goals. if i have lots of different things to do with widely varying deadlines (always, at least at work), it helps me to just break things down into chunks. so, for example, by the lunch today i will have completed task A. within an hour of when i get back from lunch i will complete tasks B, C, and D. by the end of the day i will have made serious headway on task E. the point is to take a bunch of big things that are due in the future and make them into little tasks that can be finished now.

i also make sure to take breaks periodically. once i've completed this or that, or if my eyes start to glaze over while working on something more involved, i stand up, walk around, get myself some water, go to the bathroom, talk to a coworker, stretch, dick around on adarq.org, whatever. keeps me on track.

just my $0.02.

Checklists help like crazy.

I always thought that they were gay and such an "american" thing to do, whatever that meant (I was young lol).

Just make one. Just the mere action of you writing down the checklist and having everything out on a paper in front of you at the start of the day really relieves a lot of stress too.

yeah just finished up first year.. pain in the ass with ball and school.. the checklist turned out to be the best thing, but when it all came down to it, going back to the old ways of not doing anything until schoolwork was done helped manage the time the best.
