    I recommend a master plan. You know how you have business plans or a project plan? Well, now you need to COMBINE them, focusing on actual objective TASKS.

    -Once the master plan has fully integrated the three smaller separate plans, then map them all out in a word file, on a giant calender or palm etc according to TASKS by date.

    -Once everything is fully mapped at least a few weeks out (as far as tasks), then you can save time by never (or not as often) having to waste time "thinking of what you need to do". You will simply just "know". From this master task sheet you can then divide up your days by hours/task etc.

    -You will need to do a combination of "batching" (combine smaller little things together to save time: example is when you sit down and do ALL of the lab write ups for the entire semester on day one, in one sitting, because its more efficient)

    -You will also need to integrate your plans so that you don't get stuck batching for only one of the projects/businesses that day.

    Another great piece of advice is to time your down time: get one of those kitchen twist around 60m timers. If you're apt to take too long of breaks when you eat, check email, watch TV etc, set the timer. when it goes off, just instinctively stand up, stop what you're doing and get back to work.
    Thats sound advice Babylon. Thank you.

    I recommend retaking the MBTI. You sound like an ENTP.
    This isn't true at all, it's not how J and P types are defined.

    I agree. I was almost hesitant to even post this question on here as I knew it was one of those queries that would bring the amateur type theorists out of the woodwork. I do however wish to thank you, maverick and babylon for adressing the question as it was asked and offering useful bits of information.

    Yes. I will get interested in a lot different things, get carried away in what I commit myself to due to enthusiasm, then find myself a bit overwhelmed. To resolve this, I have to go back through, tie up all lose ends on each of the things I've started and then weed out the unimportant or less serious/interesting things.

    ENTJ's should DEFINITELY cooperate with ISTJ's.

    I've often wondered how ENTJ/ISTJ would work out... Thinking about their solid dependability is enough to make me go ...

    ISTJ? I'd think an INTJ and a hive of INTPs along with an ENTP or two sprinkled in there would be better. Rules-mongers are nuisances, through and through.
    I am an ENTJ. I hate political correctness but love smart people ^_^

    ISTJs cant assimilate problems they weren't assigned as well as ESTJs can.

    Problem with INTJ is that he might try and puppet master/grab control of the whole thing.

    If you want people who will do what their told and then assimilate similar tasks without need of delegation: ESTJs.

    If you want it to basically run itself and make smart decisions on its own: get an ISTP.

    If you want someone to analyze it to death, get an INTP.

    If you want someone to fuck it all up with office christmas parties and feel good day, get any ENFJ

    If you want someone to waste funds on how the business looks asthetically, hire an ESFJ


    ...I got carried away.

    ISFJ, as predicted by socionics, is imho the best partner for ENTJs, notwithstanding the ISFJ having competence in the field the ENTJ needs help (if the ENTJ is running a computer science-based firm, he won't benefit very much from the advice of an ISFJ fashion designer, but rather from an ISFJ with a compsci background, and vice versa).

    I'd tend to agree with this. I have an ISFJ friend at work and we work together extremely well. I think we have a mutual admiration and respect for one another. Finding a male ISFJ out in the real world, tho... Haven't quite managed that yet.
