Time management is certainly critical for all busy people. I try to stay organized and keep a list of things I have to do to avoid forgetting. One other aspect of time management that I want to emphasize is to keep time for your personal life, which I have tried to do in addition to all the professional tasks I have. I chose to be an astronaut, but my family didn't, and I did not want to shortchange my two sons or my wife in terms of the time I spent with them.
