Time blocking fundamentals

What is time blocking?It is a strategy to divide your days and weeks into units of time. Each time block has an assigned tasks or project. It is useful at both work and home to assign rather than choose an activity at a specific time.  There are many uses for time blocking. It prioritizes completing specific work rather than chopping up your day with distractions. You can set aside time blocks at home for exercise, work and school, meals and free time. Time blocking establishes the “when” of your “what To Do” list.  By assigning times to tasks for you and your kids, you are setting up productivity success.
