2.     Group anything that can logically be grouped.

3.     Go back over your list and ask yourself, Have I forgotten anything?

4.     Estimate how much time each step will take. Be realistic.

5.     Reorder your list. Identify what must come first, second, third, etc.

6.     Establish milestones and checkpoints for follow-ups.

7.     Use a giant calendar or similar device. Block out times over which you have no control.
