Think of time blocking as time budgetingThe idea is that whatever money doesn’t get budgeted often gets wasted.

  • Starting on the left side of your paper/screen, write down the hours in your day.

  • Next, write down a couple of tasks that you want to get done in the space on the right.

  • Determine when you’re going to complete your most important tasks (MITs) and slot them onto your timeline.

  • Fill in the rest of your timeline around those MITs.

A word of caution: don’t get upset if your day doesn’t go exactly according to plan.

With time blocking, you are forced to make some decisions before you start your day about what success looks like.

The trick is to make sure that everything eventually gets tagged with a date, which is why I have a separate query that I use to show me all the tasks that are unscheduled so I can make sure that I follow through and schedule them appropriately.

  1. Use blocks at least 1 hour in length.

  2. Don’t try to do too much.

  3. Schedule your distractions.
