if you Haven’t Tried Time Batching, You’ll Be Shocked At How Quickly It Improves Your Productivity + Happiness.
what is time batching ?
its essentially grouping similar tasks together for the purpose of being more productive, by creating a continuous workflow, eliminating distractions + stay focused on the task at hand.
how I time batch
I always make a list the night before so I know what my day will look like – in theory! here are a few steps I use –
- Identify what you need to work on for the day
- Figure out when you’re most productive
- Group meetings + similar tasks together if possible
- Schedule your time blocks
- Block off personal time
- Allow for unexpected interruptions
- Adjust as needed
things I time batch
- design work
- invoicing + client proposals
- content + reels
- multiple blog posts (like this one!)
- client meetings + calls
- mindless social media scrolling
- and of course, food!
this structure has really saved me a lot of time. I set a time limit for each task either daily, few times a week, weekly – whatever you need, then really try to stay within this schedule. no distractions. no bouncing around from task to task. just work. multi-tasking isn’t all that its cut out to be!
with time batching, my days end sooner, more things are checked off my to-do list + I’m a happier person when everything I need to do gets done effectively + efficiently. if you know me or have worked me with, you know I am very organized + on schedule with tasks + projects!
If you’re not already time batching, give it a try! if you are, I’d love to know your schedules, what you’re time batching + how its helped you.
