After struggling for long on time management particularly on managing priorities as an entrepreneur, i came across book 'No B.S time Management by Dan kennedy'.
It has changed my views completely on time management and applying those practices gives me an immense sense of satisfaction at the end of the day that i utilized my time the way i wanted and i 100% controlled my time and not others.

I request all entrepreneurs who are struggling with time management to read this book.

Have one big box at your desk and put all the unprocessed tasks in it, and regularly (1/week) process them by defining what where and when.
It looked quit efficient but made absolutely no mention of procrastination.
