I make a checklist of everything on the specification and then plan out my day from 9am until 8pm and allocate time slots for each part of the spec but also shedule in time for breaks, eating, showering, socialising etc.

A good technique to try out is the pomodoro. From the wikipedia page:

Decide on the task to be done.
Set the pomodoro timer (traditionally to 25 minutes).
Work on the task.
End work when the timer rings and put a checkmark on a piece of paper.
If you have fewer than four checkmarks, take a short break (3–5 minutes), then go to step 2.
After four pomodoros, take a longer break (15–30 minutes), reset your checkmark count to zero, then go to step 1.

There's loads of apps out there available that can help you time this and give you a reward system for following it! The technique is based on the premise that one can only really do good, focused work in 25 minute blocks. I think it's one of the most successful time management techniques out there!

My apologies, I should have clarified more! Pomodoro is the Italian word for tomato. The person who originally came up with the Pomodoro technique used a kitchen timer, shaped like a tomato, when they pioneered the technique.

In the technique, a pomodoro is what is used to refer to as the cycle of working for 25 minutes and then the break (I would say five to ten minutes is the best break time). So four pomodoros is four rounds of doing the work+break.

Make sure its one you can stick to. As stupid as it sounds, that's the key behind creating a programme/schedule. It has to be something that you personally can stick to, regardless of mood and how you feel. Prioritise the subjects that contribute towards the long term goal (where you want to be) and then figure out how you spend most of your day. Where are the gaps in time you have, which ones could you make or sacrifice something in favour of? Then figure out if you're a early morning guy or late evening guy. I've done both, I prefer getting up really early and getting the work done before getting on with the rest of the day. Find what suits you, and that's kinda it. Hope this helps.

Regards
