How? How to Be A Better Person?

I very sincerely and very truly want to be a better person.  Yet, one challenge is that there are so damn many things about myself that need fixing:

1.  I smoke a pipe.
2.  I get annoyed at people too easily at times.
3.  I sometimes am short tempered.
4.  I do not do enough to help others.
5.  I do not use my time efficiently to get more done.
6.  I am lazy.
7.  I frequently fail at doing things I set my mind to doing.
8.  I more and more often am feeling like "I don't give a damn" about anything. 
9.  I often feel things are hopeless, when I should know they are not, and that is a part of my piss-poor attitude. 
10.  I am a slob lately.  My office, my lab... both are disheveled and messy as hell.  I have for the last several weeks gone almost 10 days between intervals when I shave the neckline of my beard... which is not a good thing as it is rather beyond what could be kindly coined "heavy growth" by the time I do end up shaving the neckline. 

This is just a short list.  I could and should probably list another 100 or more things.  But right now I am feeling #8.... basically I don't really give a damn if I list anything else right now.  It is a really piss poor attitude and I am pretty damn tired of it.  But, it is currently where I am at.  And, I am at a loss on how to begin to change it.

Your sex life is so bad that it effects the rest of your life? I'm just wondering.
