How can I get started quantifying and tracking my time and goals?

I want to take control of my time, writing output, attention and procrastination, bedtime, exercise, and diet. What tools should I use to track what I eat, how I spend my time, what I spend money on, when I exercise, when I go to sleep and wake up, and how many words I write per day. [more inside]

ADHD time management: a bracelet that vibrates every hour?

Oh hai. I have a serious case of the ADHDs, and with that comes a very poor sense of time. Apps, timers, and calendar reminders help, but I think a physical reminder would be much more effective. Do you know of a bracelet I can buy that will vibrate at regular time intervals? Preferably one that doesn't look like it belonged to a middle school boy in the 1980s? (I'm pretty sure the FitBit doesn't offer this feature, and Jawbone only vibrates if you've been sedentary for a certain period of time. I do love the look of it, though.) Thanks!!

How can I organise my work day more effectively?

A brief history of time

Is there a good popular/not-too-academic history of productivity, time management, etc.? I'd love to read an in-depth account of Ben Franklin, Peter Drucker, and everything in between. Something like this slideshow, but, well, a book. Any ideas?

I am looking for a service that will let me create messages that interrupt me at randomized intervals while I'm using my laptop.

Please help me find a service or tool that will let me create messages that interrupt me at randomized intervals while I'm using my laptop. Probably this would be classed as a productivity or self-help app, but I can't find anything relevant via Google or poking around sites like Lifehacker. [more inside]

How do I manage my time?

How do I allocate time to different parts of my life? I'm a second-year PhD student, but I think this is a universal problem. When I am deciding what to do at a given moment I might have a small number of major long-term projects (right now: two research projects and a course I'm taking), a bunch of minor tasks, and planning for fun stuff. I feel like I really should be devoting most of my time to the major projects, but I sometimes despair at the thought that the little stuff will never get done. [more inside]
