Example: Our Hero

Our Hero - has home-brew system for recording what he's doing, because a book on being organized said it's important to know where your time is actually going.

he has this imap-based scheduling client, which he uses both to schedule meetings and calls, and also to plan his day.

the first thing on his calendar is 8:30 to 8:45 every morning, "schedule for today"

During this time he looks at his todo list, makes time estimates of how long things will take, and fills in slots that aren't already committed

By 8:45, his day is completely booked solid, although some of the time blocks are allocatd to things like "misc".
