B) Look at this; http://cdn.information-management.com/media/editorial/dmreview/200407/200407_018_1.gif Which quadrant do you spend your time in? If you have lots of to-do lists, re-write them into an empty grid in the appropriate locations (important/not important.. urgent, not urgent). Do everything in Q1 first. Then do Q2. Stay on top of Q2 and you won't have as many crisis.

H) Everything added to your to-do list needs a deadline and an estimate of how long it will take. (Example; Read X, due by Y, less than Z hours)
I) Sometimes you need to ask yourself "What am I avoiding?" "What am I afraid of?"
