Gah!! Time Management Frustration

I have time management issues. I read articles about time management all the time. Habit building stuff like making a to-do list, writing down goals, and the like. Again time has gotten away from me, I'm arguing with myself between wanting to play Skyrim, wanting to surf the net, wanting to earn swagbucks, and finally needing to do things like potty training Claire, menu planning, cooking from scratch, exercising, oh and school. I'm not behind in school but I sure am taking my sweet time, especially with this group project I need to do. I'm a horrible procrastinator, hopefully this new time management thing I'm going to try will help.

First I'm going to try the power hour thing, basically I'm going to try and set my timer for 1hour and work on nothing else but schoolwork, for the entire hour, I have plenty to do for the hour (of course I'm going to pause the timer whenever I need to take care of Claire). 15 minutes to clean house (again pausing when needing to). 30 minutes to exercise, 30 minutes to surf the web or earn swagbucks. 1 hour to work on stories and writings. 2 hours of video games, any extra time is for more schoolwork, or game playing if I really don't have any schoolwork that I can do at that moment. One hour before bed I am going to work on a to-do list, particularly for my schoolwork, pick up the house, and reflection, maybe some reading. I want to plan some outside time and reading time for Claire, too.

Hopefully this can help until I'm done with this semester.
