Time Blocking – The secret to business success

The reason time blocking is a secret to all success

I have discussed prior about the importance of time blocking. Time blocking is a great way to grow your business, but to some people, time blocking may be an unheard-of term.

So, what is time blocking?

Simply putting it, time blocking is a time management technique.

Schedule how you will spend your day, setting different tasks and jobs into timed sections.

But why is time blocking so effective?

Time blocking helps you visualise your day. This is so important.

A study by Harvard University found that “people spend 46.9 percent of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they’re doing”.

Time blocking eliminates many problems that challenge productivity.

It stops procrastination, distractions and helps you to stay motivated. When, undertaking tasks, it can be easy to lose focus and become overwhelmed.

Time blocking as a concept can be incredibly beneficial, however as a small business owner, you may struggle to find a way to implement time blocking effectively.
