comment How do you manage several major goals?
You should have a look at the free ebook - it gives quite good idea about the method itself. When you like it, I'd recommend buying the book "Master Your Workday Now". I found it very interesting and helpful.

comment How do you manage several major goals?
Originally, his first book was called "Total workday control" and the method was described with a special setup with MS Outlook. Today he recommends Toodledo, but he also wrote a new edition of the book which explains in detail how to setup MS Outlook (as it is very often used in corporate environments). In fact it works with each software which allows to enter 2 dates for each task (a start date and a due date), a priority and lets you filter and sort by priority or date. I'm using Emacs org-mode for my MYN setup. The Goals are managed separately in a mindmap or similar.

one such tool is the MYN "Master Your (Workday) Now"* Method by Michael Linenberger (see michaellinenberger.com/1MTDvsMYN.html ) One of its essentials is sorting the tasks according to their "start date" with the most recent first. I can highly recommend his book. There is also a reduced version of this method, called "The One Minute to do list", which is described in a free ebook: michaellinenberger.com/free1MTD.htm Note: I'm not affiliated in any way with this company, just a "fan". :-)

comment Waking early without waking others
using a light is for sure a great method, but it is only possible if there are no other people in the same bedroom which do not want to wake up at the same time

comment How *exactly* do you manage all of the various things you need to do during the workday?
a very interesting question - IMHO you are asking for some sort of "micro project management" tool, which creates a master plan considering all your small projects and tasks and their dependencies. I'd love to have some tool like that, but I fear it would be far too complicated ... however I'm looking forward to the answers.
