What is time-blocking?

There's a productive day and then there's a time-blocked day. 👊🏼⁠


When I started implementing time-blocking into my schedule, it CHANGED the game. I no longer felt foggy and frazzled and was able to be a lot more productive.⁠


I began by using my Google Calendar, and making sure that every meeting I had was scheduled the week before (if it wasn't already there). From there, in all of the open time slots, I scheduled tasks that I needed to accomplish that day. That way, my calendar reminds me each day of what I should be working on -- so I'm not getting side-tracked.


On my calendar, I make sure to color-code my time-blocks. Meetings are pink, each client has a separate color, professional development is green, etc. This helps me, visually, to see where I'm spending most of my time.


PRO TIP: Schedule down time into your blocks.⁠ Want to make sure you take a walk each day? Schedule 1 hour around lunchtime to make sure you stick to your plan.

What is Time Blocking?⁠ Time Blocking is the act of setting your daily schedule up In blocks, or chunks, of time so that you know exactly what you need to get done that day.⁠ ⁠


Why does it work? 🧠⁠ Our brains can only make so many decisions a day without turning to mush. Being intentional about how you work during the day allows you feel more clear-minded, creative, and calm.⁠ ⁠


How do I do it?⁠ I found this really awesome article that explains more about how you can integrate time blocking into your daily schedule.
