Like Dave suggested, I make a list of tasks and them prioritize them according to importance. Then I tackle the most important first, then the next and so on. Sometimes, I just have to realize that there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done and let some things drop. If you have a spouse and your kids are old enough, delegate whatever you can. I have a wife and 3 active kids and I could be going from the time I rise until my head hits the pillow. However, you have to take time for yourself to relax and clear your mind. Otherwise, you will have real troubles staying focused. Good luck!
