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.
