Try Time Blocking to Get More Done — 4 Comments

  1. I write lists either the night before or first thing in the morning of the things that I need to get done each day. I joke that when I don’t have a list, I feel listless, but it’s actually true. I drift from one job to the next, not really sure what is the best way to spend my time.

    I like your time blocking concept, Suzanne, so I’m going to try it. First, I’ll have to wipe my whiteboard clean.

    • Hey, Wendy,

      I really love the whiteboard because it’s right next to my desk where I work during the day. If I get offtrack and glance up at the board, I immediately realize that I’m offtrack so I stop doing what I’m doing and do what I planned to be doing.

      Good luck with the whiteboard. I hope it works for you, too.

  2. Hi Suzanne,

    Love the beautiful pictures! I agree on using the whiteboard. Mine is divided into sections rather than time of day. The top sections are: plan-research, write-rewrite, edit-polish, and submit-publish. I use sticky notes to manage my projects under each section. On the bottom half of my board, I write the next day’s to-do list. I’m going to try some time blocking to help me get those pressing projects finished. Thanks!!

    • Hi, Cindy,

      For some reason, time blocking works better for me than anything else I’ve tried. I hope it works for you, too!

      Thanks for dropping by. I’m glad you like the photos here. I love taking them and sharing them.
