Squeeze more from your busy schedules: Time blocking

What is Time blocking?

Day themeing
Tip:- Do only 1 or 2 tasks in a day to squeeze the best out of your time and efforts.

Time blocking Mindset

  1. Maintain single focus: Probably you have a list of tasks that you need to complete. But always aim to maintain a single focus in the one-time block. Multitasking may possibly be compulsory in some cases but never productive. So if it is possible, focus on a single task.
  2. Determine your essentials: When you look at your to-do list, it might be very vast. To actually cover everything, you need to prioritize them according to their importance and urgency. This way of prioritization is done with the help of the Eisenhower matrix method. This is a powerful tool for time management. “Focus on what matters most.”
  3. Achieve more by doing less: When you focus on a single task at a time with high productivity, you achieve more. For this, The Pomodoro technique proves to be really worth using. You can learn what is it in 4min on the link.
  4. Plan to Recharge: Your body and mind need rest periodically to work on their peak. So give space of your time for rest for enhancing productivity.
