How to Time Block
Time blocking is a practice that allows you to plan out your day in intervals, usually 15-, 30-, or 60-minute intervals, and is appropriate for anyone is committed to completing meaningful projects. Planning your day with this much detail shows you the true time between meetings and leaves you with options for meaningful projects and breaks.
To practice time blocking, either show projects on your regular calendar; rough out the day on a piece of paper; use a spreadsheet; or use an app.
