Time management is one of the most important skills you'll need in everything that you do. It's not exactly something that people can do overnight; it'll take some time to figure out a system that works best for you. Personally, I like to write down all the tasks I have to do that week. It just helps me visualize exactly how much work and gives me an idea of how much time I might need to set aside (and I also get to cross things off once I'm done which is strangely satisfying). Each task has a different level of priority so I always make sure to make a mental note about what needs to be done first.
I also find that willpower and commitment are the two most important traits you'll need to get things done. Sometimes I would have what seems like an endless list of things to do for that day. Long lists can be discouraging and incredibly intimidating to start, but the hardest part is getting started. Once I push myself to work on my first task, everything else starts flowing from there. If you can commit yourself to your roles and responsibilities, you're already half-way there.
