An 18-Minute Plan for managing your day. Ok, this is silly but this has revolutionized my day. Really. I tend to put way Too Many Things on my "to do list". Having to actually put them on my schedule (rather just on the list "to do") has made me aware of what I can and can't accomplish on a given day.

This guy has a few other ideas that might resonate with you day-managing weaknesses.

The Cates have managed the Carnival of Homeschooling for a Long time. They also are great about linking to other homeschool carnivals. Here's their most recent list of other homeschool carnivals. It is always fun to peruse for useful ideas and tips.
