@David -- I agree entirely, but have yet to find a manager who enables me to single-task

printed and glued into my handy-dandy notebook; with some small customizations this could be perfect--we'll see how it serves over a few days

A very good and comprehensive approach. The hard part about getting the ball rolling on these approaches is getting developers to understand it's ok for their estimates to be off--so getting them to understand what is done with their estimates and getting them to trust that honest inaccuracies aren't held against them is a critical first-step

that very well could be EXACTLY what I need. Multiple tasks tracked in hardcopy with a simple-enough way to switch!!!

very nice! I like the Timex still on the stand :D My only concern would be that, in my office, most things that size are made of foam and get thrown at other people :)

I like the approach; I've tried something similar with emails where I refuse to check them more than 3-times a day (mid-morning, after lunch, before leaving)--but in that scenario I started to get too many people showing up to reiterate their email--immediately pulling me from my task, and later making me re-read the same email to make sure all questions were answered

I could go the chess-clock route and insist my manager never gives me more than two tasks at once. ...pondering...

I've actually thought about exactly that, then went the extra step to considering a punch-clock
