Weekly Planning...

I've got 6 weeks until my vacation, 7 weeks until my first 10k race, 9 weeks until my first mud run/obstacle course, 13 weeks until my first Tough Mudder, and 14 weeks until the baby shower a friend and I are hosting for friends. There are a lot of things to get together, get done and work on before then. These things include: running and strength workouts, birthday parties, house de-clutter, some household projects, work, organization, etc. Lots to do and only a finite amount of time to get schtuffs done. Solution for attacking this to do list and potential procrastination problem?
