Your calendar can be a tool that protects your focus, defends your productivity, and gives a sense of what you can accomplish in a week.
Merge your to-do list with your calendar. Whenever you add something to your to-do list for the week, immediately add the time it will take to your schedule. It will give you an actual picture of what you can accomplish.
A focus block is a period of work where you shut out everything, turn off your phone, and pay attention to one task.
The key to success for a focus block:
Without lunch blocked off, people often find that they do meetings or eat from their desks. The same can be said for rest and fitness time. Ensure you protect yourself from working during these times by blocking off specific times for it.
Having a schedule isn't about doing more work but getting what you want done in all areas of your life, not just your day job.
Do a schedule prep. Lay out your focus blocks, fitness, meal times, and major tasks into your schedule.
Leave lots of room for the unexpected and ensure you're not overcommitting.
Try to keep your default meeting length to 15 or 30 minutes. When you constrain time, you focus more. Longer meetings should be the exception, not the rule.
For internal meetings, allow people to book based on your calendar. For external meetings, give people access to open spots in your calendar.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
