Time blocking is a great way to become more productive. Time blocking is when you block off a set amount of time on your calendar to do a specific task or project; it really works well if you discipline yourself to do it.
Delegating and letting go of those things that you shouldn’t be doing is important; however, there are things that only you can do in your business, and you should make sure that you take the necessary time to handle those things to move your business forward. Working in an organized fashion is the key to productivity success, and time blocking can help.
Here’s how time blocking works:
- Make a list of the things that you need to accomplish for the day.
- Next, prioritize that list and then determine how much time you think you need to complete each task.
- Then begin making appointments on your calendar for each task.
- You then work your way through each; once one appointment time is ended, you then move on to the next appointment on your calendar.
Time blocking helps you stay accountable for the things that you need to accomplish. This method of time management helps you plan your day instead of your day planning you.
