Time-blocking segregates your day into various chunks of time that helps us achieve everything we need to. Using this method can help us cut procrastination and waste, make for more efficient work days and also give us back personal time.
If you’re settling in for a couple of hours of deep work with a Facebook tab open, your ‘phone ready and willing to accept calls, and your colleagues feeling like they can interrupt you at any moment, you’re setting yourself up for distractions.
You can be more productive at home or work by scheduling in a specific time each day to respond to your e-mails and voicemails. This allows your other blocks of time to be far less interrupted, enabling you to get your best work done.
“Time-blocking” is a productivity technique where you block time slots out of your day during which you can focus on completing specific tasks without interruption. It can be used effectively for work, study and life.
