Hello

I'm starting my new job soon as a windows system administrator for a small company. We have couple windows 2k & 2k3 servers, phone system, backup co-location, 10 remote desktop user on VPN and about 30 workstations at the HQ.

I was wondering if any of you know any useful links to learning resources as far organizing your daily IT routine / schedule, how to make organizational plan and have it "all together". I know this subject is vast but will appreciate any suggestions. My desire is to have my work prioritized, organized and since I have never done that in a bigger environment I'd like to use others experience. I'm pretty well organized using Outlook & Pocket PC but I bet there are tools out there to help me get started. I also wanted to present to my new boss a strategy plan so we are on the same page and our cooperation goes smooth.

Thank you
