The Logic Behind The Two-Minute Rule

  • Incorporating the two-minute rule as a habit should make it easier to follow, in time.
  • Once you start working on something, the chances of your giving up on it are negligible.
  • It provides a solution to all those small tasks that tend to get overshadowed and forgotten in the wake of big and critical projects.
  • It helps you create a mindset that avoids procrastination. Once you get used to implementing the rule, you can extend it to lengthier tasks.

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.
