Episode 28. If you’ve tried time blocking but it didn’t work, I’m going to walk through the steps - cause it’s more than just blocking “work time” on your calendar and hoping you get everything done. Find out why it works (and who it might not work for) and follow the steps in this episode to create your own schedule. Before you start, you'll want to know these 3 things:

  1. What are your goals - what do you want to accomplish?
  2. What is getting your time (figure out these time buckets)
  3. Where are you spending too much time and could be spending less?

Your action this week is to create a time blocking schedule and try it out for 1-2 weeks. If something doesn't work quite right, tweak it a bit. Tag me on Instagram with your schedule!
