As someone who is ridiculously dependent on notes and to-do lists, I found this video below by Bullet Journal to be great. I actually follow most of the tips within the video already, including the bullet protocol, moving tasks forward, etc. It's a great system that will help you manage your tasks and life ... especially if you are inundated with responsibilities. This video does a nice job of getting you started. I would also recommend that you have a glue stick handy for applying articles and scraps that you find and include an "Idea Page" and a "Doodle Page" ... and make it a point to visit these pages at least once a week to spur your creative edge.
