Many of us have or had the same problem like yours, but you are the only person who schedule your life, and it takes a little time to acomplish that.
Start slowly, in te first week schedule just important tasks, in the second week make your list longer and set priorities to your tasks, in the third week try to plan your day hour by hour and respect that schedule.
I recommend my software to organize your life, it's simple, easy to use but it has all necessary features to get started.
If you have any questions you can post here.
Have a good day

You might consider "batching" your tasks... do all your blogging one day and set the posts to release throughout the week. Do all your articles about mineral makeup one day, etc. This keeps you focused on ONE task at a time, which is infinitely more productive and effective than jumping from task to task because you have to constantly shift your mindset and mode.
Also, see if there is anything you can outsource that YOU don't have to do yourself, but just needs to get done. There are virtual and actual assistants that are ready to help you with some of the tasks you aren't so quick or good at, or that you don't enjoy.

|I struggle with it too. And I agree batch it. |
I plan on set a time limit on the tasks. For me to spend one hole morning on it is too much because I homeschool too. So for me it will be an hour and 1/2 then I will need to move on.
I also am doing more budgeting. I send bulk samples to folks to hand out to there customers or friends. And I have set a limit because the time it took to make them was eating away. I also make up catalog envelopes and letters once a month right down to the postage. Then I only have to address them and add the name to the letter. I am going to start doing that with my samples too.

Organizing your business schedule is important. You have made great progress by identifying what you want to do. Use your list and write tasks for each project then schedule the tasks on your planner accordingly.
