Time Blocks- Let's try using blocks of 2 to 4 hours for productivity on one task. Let's say you have 4 task for the day progressively work your first block set 10-15 mins before that block ends to stay aware of it coming to a close and try not on extend it. When it ends move on to the next block. (I use my phone as a timer)
Time Blocking is not meant to be rigid but you must be struck about moving between blocks.
Your Block Can look like this:
2hrs- Work Task / 2hrs Next Work Task/ 20 Mins Break/ 2hrs Next Task/ 1hr Break/ 2hrs next Work Task/30 Mins Break.
This is not a schedule to cram more into the day but instead to FIND more time.
PUT EVERYTHING IN A BLOCK.
EXERCISE -in a block
CLEANING – in a block
PROJECTS – in a block.
DOWNTIME/BREAKS/LUNCH – in a block
Does block Scheduling work?
When we were is school we had different classes and different blocked out times. In English class during third period we only did English. At least 10 mins before the bell rang, our teacher told us to wrap up and complete the next time we return to that class and in some cases let us write down what we will start on the next time we come to class. RIGHT?
We have a 5mins timeline to enter our next class I.e Task or Block.
When you give a block your all and you eliminate distractions where you can, then you don’t feel bad about it if its incomplete, you simply move o and keep scheduling.
