What do you need to "run" in your own life. Aside from some social events, it's usually the same stuff all the time... Work, laundry, bills. What about that needs scheduling?
It's pretty much: 1. social events, 2. meetings/classes, and 3. deadlines. Without a schedule for those things, I get paranoid that I'll forget about them... and sometimes I do. Which feels absolutely horrible. I get the feeling, though, that as the years go on, I'll get better at that sort of thing. But in the meantime, I don't trust myself without a planner and/or a schedule.
I don't usually keep a schedule, but I do like having a to do list. I use google calendar and tasks to help keep track of things that I need to do. I'll put the most important thing at the top and work my way down the list. I've found that it makes me more efficient because the most important things always get done.

I have my google calender for when bills are due, meetings, and other events. I have such a routine down, I know what I need to do after work. I don't do things at a certain time, but in a time frame. I just make sure I get things done before bedtime
