I developed this template for tracking project goals and managing time commitments that you're welcome to borrow! The template spreadsheet works better if you download instead of viewing in Google Docs. Generally, the logic is that you should have a plan to tenure (or getting your PhD and finding a job) and then work backwards from there for yearly, monthly, and daily goals. I also recommend tracking your time to meet daily/weekly/monthly productivity goals and then giving yourself permission to take nights, weekends, and holidays off (to steal from Golash-Boza, get a life!). Tracking my hours saved my sanity in graduate school. The template is loosely based on this 5-Year Plan template from The Professor Is In and reflects the advice on goal-setting, time management, and daily writing from the blogs listed aboveI also use a daily to-do list at the start of each week that breaks up goals into manageable chunks.
