limiting work hours helps a lot. instead of staring at the monitor all day long set a maximum of 4-6-8 hours a day and make sure you do not make it any longer. soon you'll find out there's not really much time for lots of things ;)
This and the to do list have helped me too. I used to sit at the computer all day long effectively working only 3-4 hours/day because otherwise I would feel guilty for not working hard enough. Recently I realized how much time I was losing pretending I was working. Now I try to stay focused and not care about how many hours I put in every day. If I get the job done by noon I just take the rest of the day off. Making good money doesn't necessarily mean working 10 hours a day.
