Another great source for kicking off your day. Of course it is FREE!

<a href="http://davidseah.com/archives/2007/01/02/emergent-task-planner-2007-updates/">Emergent Task Planner 2007 Updates</a>

Here is what the author, David Seah, has to say about this tool he created:



So what is Emergent Task Planning? It’s a more directed version of Emergent Task Tracking (http://davidseah.com/pceo/ett), which is the form that helps you figure out where your time is disappearing to. Emergent Task Planning, on the other hand, attempts to guide your effort for the day by using time boxing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_boxing):



list the things you need to do for the day
estimate how long they’ll take (up to 4 hours…if it’s longer, break it up)
figure out where in the day you’ll do them
block out the time, and stick to the schedule
Think of it as a quickie day planning sheet.


I've printed off a few sheets and this one is a winner in my book. Soon as I get a new job :mad: I'll begin putting it to good use.
