    Default P's and organizational skills.

    Have any of you xxxP's found any method of organization and/or time management that works for you? Please share.

    I could be doing a lot better, but one thing I do is use the Notepad program to mash together things I have to keep track of and remember, there are 15 notepads open on my computer right now. It's been a life-saver.

    No. I've figured out how to expect my lack of time management skills, so in a way, it's well managed, because I know exactly what I'll accomplish, and what won't survive the limited timeframe to get things done after I've procrastinated.

    As for organization. I go for the organized chaos method. No one else can find anything, but I know exactly where everything is. "Where are the earbuds?" "Under the pile of papers on the left, inside the cell phone case."

    The one thing I've found helps consistently is planning backward rather than forward. J's plan forward--If I start right away when can I be finished. P's do better with figuring out the last realistic moment they can start when they consider other commitments they have and how long the process might take.

    This is so on point. When completing something I'll always think of it in terms of when is the latest I can start it and still complete it. However, when I finally get around to it, my concentration and focus is unparalleled.

    excel meta-file for calendar/academic to-do list/longer-range things/etc + word colour-coded to-do table for more immediate things.

    but more importantly, getting into the habit of checking it many times a day. I think almost any system would work if it's something constantly accessible and if it's actually used regularly.

    actually doing stuff on my to-do list, that's another story. but this helps me remember it, at least.

    I bought a whiteboard. Probably the smartest thing I ever did.

    I have a chalkboard. But between to-do lists, random thoughts, invention ideas, assignment/test dates, quotes, and girlfriend graffiti scrambled all over the place, it may just add to confusion.

    I make excellent schedules, yet to adhere to them is a task in itself.

    all my scheduling is mental and it's very open. for example, my standard Monday: morning is open so i can work on my car or do some studying, go to the gym sometime in the afternoon, and then school later at night. i schedule by chunks of the day. early morning, morning, late morning, noon, afternoon, late afternoon, and night. i then fill in what i can do in each part of the day, realistically. as long as each part of the day is filled in with something somewhat important, then i generally get stuff done.
