Time Blocking Your Day

Time Blocking

Do you ever look at the clock and think “What have I accomplished today?” It is a frustrating feeling that you have not finished everything you had planned in your head to do.

Last year I started time blocking my days and it really helps calm that frustration and keeps me on task. Each night I plan the next day by the hour so I know there is enough time to accomplish everything on the list. I can look back and see how much progress that I actually made. I LOVE checking things off of my list!

I liked the process so much that this year I am using a daily planner to time block each day. As the year goes on, I will be able to look back at my accomplishments over the year.

If you would like to try time blocking, here is the spreadsheet that I started with. It is very basic but that is all you need to have a calm and highly productive day.

Cheers to a calm and present day.
