Time Blocking Explained

Time Blocking Explained

Time blocking is the division of time into specific blocks throughout your day. 

Each block serves as a designated time frame to accomplish a specific goal, project, or task by zooming-in on that single item only.

At the core of this approach lays the dedicated prioritization.

Once a week, create a layout of the items on your to-do list for the week ahead and pencil a rough draft of your time blocks for each day.

With each passing day, review and adjust your weekly time blocks.

Task Batching

Task Batching

  • Effectively process a batch of similar (usually bite-sized) tasks, in a designated time block.
  • By grouping these items together, you’ll be able to minimize the amount of context-switching

Day Theming

Day Theming

An advanced version of task batching, for complex projects which usually require a high volume of work.

Day theming allows one to dedicate an entire day per week for such complex initiatives.

Time boxing

Time boxing

Often confused with time blocking, timeboxing is actually an imposed limit on how much time you invest on any specific action item.

Such as “create two Facebook ads between 4pm to 6pm”.

Having a limited amount of time to work on a task commands attention to its due date and significantly increases the odds of making substantial progress.

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.

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!

Sean Green

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

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!

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
