Several years ago, my Time Blocking Template was made available to download and you loved it!
Thousands of readers have downloaded the free printable time blocking template and I’ve heard from many of you that these worksheets have improved your productivity. I’m thrilled that you love this tool! One of the benefits to Time Blocking is that it works for everyone! Working professionals both in and out of the home, busy mothers, homeschooling parents, and students can all benefit from using time blocking.
The Multitasking Myth
We’ve been told that multitasking is the way to get more work done in less time, and this is JUST NOT TRUE! Multitasking does not allow you to focus and focus is the key to increased productivity. I have found that by using time blocking calendars, I have been able to stop multi-tasking and create space for Deep Work.
When I turn off distractions and set a block of time to focus on a project I find myself even more motivated to get things done! It’s amazing how much more I can get done when I have set aside time for that project.
The Time Blocking and Deep Work Connection
“Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It’s a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time.”
– Cal Newport in his book Deep Work Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World
