Determine what tasks and goals you want to achieve in each role in your life (see sidebar).  Then number them and stick them, with the number into whatever calendar you are using.  Some of the time blocks in your calendar will already be standardly filled out to fill these roles (see Having A Standard Week).  You can also do this for longer periods of time and in your LifePlan.
