Follow The Schedule

With days that are time blocked in advance, you won’t have to constantly make choices about what to focus on. All you need to do is follow your time blocked schedule. If you get off-task or distracted, simply look at your schedule and get back to whichever task you blocked off time for.

Key Points

The key to this method is prioritizing your task list in advance — a dedicated weekly review is a must. Take stock of what’s coming up for the week ahead and make a rough sketch of your time blocks for each day. At the end of every workday, review any tasks you didn’t finish — as well as any new tasks that have come in — and adjust your time blocks for the rest of the week accordingly.

"A 40 hour time-blocked work week, I estimate, produces the same amount of output as a 60+ hour work week pursued without structure."

What is Time Blocking?
  • Time blocking is a time management technique.
  • This type of time tracking requires that you divide your day into defined slots or chunks of time. 
  • Each block of time is dedicated to completing a specific task 
  • When you manage your time in this way you are ensuring your work gets complete,
  •  And ensures you are just doing one task at a time and not multitasking
  • This also means that you will not have to decide what to focus on.
  •  You will not be making constant choices about spending your time but simply following a time blocked schedule.

Time blocking

It's the practice of planning out every moment of your day in advance and dedicating specific time “blocks” for certain tasks and responsibilities.

When you fill your calendar with the tasks and things you want to do, it’s harder for others to steal your time.

Time blocking your schedule




• Know your high-level priorities and goals.

• Start creating blocks for your time outside of work (morning routines, time with family/friends etc.)

• Schedule your most meaningful work for when your energy and attention naturally peak.

• Add blocks for reactive tasks each day (emails, calls, meetings).

• Write down your daily to-do list (for work, home, and family/social) and fill it in.
