Make a list of priorities and get a calendar
"Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize!" says Uva Coles, vice president of student services at Peirce College in Philadelphia. "You cannot do it all, but you can do the most important things well. It's critical that you review your responsibilities in order of importance and move accordingly."
When you're juggling multiple priorities, your calendar becomes your new best friend, Augustine says.
"Find one calendar to use I recommend one that is synchronized with your smartphone or tablet and carry it with you wherever you go. Find a way to distinguish different activities on your calendar so you can keep it all straight. This could include color-coding your different work schedules, family obligations and down time, or assigning different sounds when appoint reminders pop up on your smart device," Augustine says.

By prioritizing goals, it should be easier balancing your personal with your business life, Kirkus says.
"If I know one of my kids has an event and need to leave early, I stay a little later in the office other days to compensate," he says. "Plan ahead, and try your best to always be prepared for any last minute curveballs that are thrown your way."
Remember you can't keep everyone happy
Rather than trying to keep everyone at your jobs happy, try instead to focus on what's best for your health, your income and your relationships, Cole says.
"Slow down and be intentional about your time," she says. "Take care of your needs first so that you may have the mental, physical and emotional capacity to take care of others after."
Unfortunately, feeling the need to keep everyone happy doesn't end at work. Two jobs can also mean more pressure at home.
"Your kids rarely understand when you have to work more hours and are away from them more than you would like to be," Kirkus says."I do my best to explain the realities of life to my kids, and when I am home they come first."

Find out company policies on time off and if you are expected to be 'on call' or responsive via email when you're not physically working in the building, Augustine suggests.
"For instance, if your boss sends off a request on a Friday evening, are you expected to respond right away, the next morning or on Monday when you're back on the clock? Additionally, clearly communicate when you will be unavailable to work this will help cut down on scheduling conflicts," she says.
Also, don't be afraid to re-evaluate and be honest with your boss once you are a few weeks into your new working life.
"It's easy to think you can handle both jobs, but once you start working both, you may find you become physically exhausted and mentally drained," says Heather R. Huhman, founder and president of Come Recommended, a consultancy for job search and human resources technologies.
"To prevent yourself from losing one of your jobs, you must be honest with yourself and your supervisors about your abilities and the moments when you become overwhelmed at work," Huhman says.

Get sleep and exercise when you can
To manage your sanity, you've got to dedicate time for exercise and sleep, Huhman says.
"While it may seem impossible to have a consistent exercise routine when working more than 40 hours a week, if you can budget even 15 minutes a day doing some type of physical activity, you will feel more refreshed and focused for work," she says.
Although it may be tempting to sacrifice your sleep, when you deprive yourself of sleep you will be prone to stress and your immune system will become weaker, Huhman says.
"Even if getting more sleep means pushing your emails to the next morning, make sure you are getting enough rest to get you through each day."
