A huge time saver is using a timer to do tasks. For example-I hate emptying the dishawasher. So I set a timer for 1 minute and tell myself I only have to spend 1 minute emptying it. But of course once I get started I always just keep going to finish it off. Once in a while I try to race the clock and get done in 1 minute too. Whatever works. Also, do you find yourself getting on the computer to do one quick thing and the next thing you know you have spent 2 hours on facebook or wandering around the internet? Yeah, me too. So set a timer for 20 minutes or so and you won't loose track of time.
Write everything down! Everything! I have tons of little notebooks all over the place, in my purse, in the car, at my bedside, etc, to write everything down. Project lists, birthday lists, grocery lists, goals, journaling etc, a notebook is a wonderful place to keep track of everything. I refer back to mine often to keep up with my goals and projects.
