Time Blocking

The first thing that helps me to create my future is time block sections in my schedule to work on different projects and balance work and family. I use a hourly planner so I can be more effective in time blocking. Here’s an example from my planner last year.

Success is Scheduled tip is from Tiffany Peterson from the same videos I shared about Joy Lists a couple weeks ago.


Do you use a planner or your phone or some other tool.

Here is the definition of Time Blocking.
Time blocking is a time management method that asks you to divide your day into blocks of time. Each block is dedicated to accomplishing a specific task, or group of tasks, and only those specific tasks. … With days that are time blocked in advance, you won’t have to constantly make choices about what to focus on.

As a result of time blocking, I don’t feel as overwhelmed when I add things to my schedule. People tend to complain that they are so busy, but with effective time blocking, that feeling isn’t so overwhelming. Consequently, people can focus on being more creative as they see they have blocks of time do so.
