How Time Blocking Helps You Do More - Ink+Volt - Deepstash

Every once in a while, I come across a meme that says something to the effect of “You have the same number of minutes in the day as Beyonce” as a way to conjure up motivation. And while, yes, that is technically true, most of us don’t have the same number of assistants and professionals working for us that Beyonce does.      


Time blocking — described as scheduling a day in blocks of time — can be adapted to nearly anybody’s work style or schedule. That’s the beauty of it.

Variations of time blocking

Variations of time blocking

  • Task batching: Grouping together small tasks that are alike or require the same space or tools. 
  • Day theming: Dedicating certain projects or tasks to a certain day. If your work requires you to wear many hats, this may be for you! A common way to incorporate this into time blocking is by only scheduling meetings on certain days of the week.
  • Time boxing: This simply means you’re putting a time limit on your task, like editing work between 9 and 11 am.

Why it works

Why it works

  • It generates a massive amount of productivity.
  • That’s basically creating 20 hours in a week. Time between tasks, bouncing back and forth, losing focus and trying to stay on track, really adds up.
  • Keeps you on track and puts an emphasis on planning.

How to start

How to start

  • Start by looking at your big priorities. Schedule those non-negotiables first.
  • You can fill in the remaining time slots with task batching activities.
  • Remember, time blocking can always be subject to change. You don’t need to keep the same blocks every day or every week.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Laetitia Berton

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!
