How have you managed your time during LD?

I am bad at time management, for LD I just try and do it, sleep and then finish it.

But are there some amazing time management stories, hour schedules produced for LD and did they work?

    On my last time when I did compo, I used a text file “todo.txt”, in which I listed all features I wanted (not only programming), starting with symbol “-“. Then once in a while I resorted the list by priority (considering time that is left), marked implemented stuff with “+”, and added new items to the end (not much, because I was busy working and not dreaming about new features).
    This is how the final list looks like: https://github.com/starry-abyss/ld34/blob/master/todo.txt
    Note that I didn’t write any plans, only this priority list (which is not very good if you work in a team).
    The only feature that was really cut – I replaced planned bosses with just simple enemies for easy programming (but still called them bosses).
    Hope this helps!
