For some, the idea of scheduling tasks in such a rigid way does not seem likely . But, if you have a backlog of tasks to get through or a deadline to abide by, time blocking can help keep you on track while keeping distractions, procrastination and unproductive multitasking at bay.
Give some time to planning. If you’re tempted to try this out, the first thing you need to do is spend a short amount of time setting out what you need to complete before the week is over. Decide what makes for a week well spent. Focus on the tasks that hold the most importance of your work day.
If you have a Gmail email account the Google calender feature works great for time blocking. Our team has our Google calender synced in a way we can view each others daily tasks. This way we can keep each other accountable throughout the day. Hope you will be inspired to try time blocking and compare your productivity before and after time blocking. Happy time blocking!
