Even you can be doing all of this and still not be making a dime yet! I know I'm not and I am working on a lot of these:)

To be honest, if you're going to be doing all that yourself, you need to face the fact that it's going to be spread out over a long period of time. Write down next to each task and sub-task how long you think it will likely take. Then plan out the next week or several weeks to do it all. There's no other way really.

But one thing's for sure, once you have your plan in place, that will take away the worry and you can just focus on one task from the list at a time.

I normally go on what do I like to do and I am good at, and what I don't like to do I outsource. At least that saves time for me

A great list and even if some of these are not done by everyone, it does show that Affiliate Marketing is not for the squeamish!
