Just take the time to write down important dates, names, ideas, etc. It will help you avoid the frustration you feel when you know you were supposed to do something, but you just cannot remember what.
Make schedules and deadlines.

It will help you to avoid slacking off and dragging out a project.
Do not procrastinate.
