Hour Blocking: The Secret to Effective Time Management

Hour Blocking: The Secret to Effective Time Management

Time management is an essential skill, and hour blocking is an easy and powerful way to master this skill. You can use it to block off hours in your schedule and get more things finished. It enables you to take control of the minutes in each day.

Follow this process to take advantage of this valuable technique:

  1. Start with planning. Make a list of all of your important tasks for the week. Then, narrow this list down to three to five essential tasks.
  • Be realistic about your planning. Avoid thinking that you can do a million tasks in one day or week.
  1. Block your hours. After you have a short list of tasks, block the hours on your schedule. This is called time blocking and essentially requires you to take each hour and assign a task or item to it.
  • Clump related tasks together and add them to specific blocks of time.
  • Remember to schedule lunches and breaks. Taking time to rest your mind and body is important! Your breaks allow you to get back to your tasks with renewed energy.
  1. Reduce distractions. Hour blocking demands that you eliminate distractions, so you don’t lose focus.
  • Figure out what your main distractions are. Do you waste time on social media or constantly check your phone? Do you spend hours in your email inbox and respond to every message instantly?
  • Eliminate or reduce these distractions. You may want to set aside a specific chunk of time each day to handle your social media, email inbox, and other tasks that distract you from your more essential actions.
  • Also, when you’re working, let others know that you’re busy so they can limit their interruptions. 
  1. Keep the time blocks flexible. Unless you know the exact amount of time each task will take, it’s important to keep the time blocks flexible. This will also enable you to take care of other important things that come up with a minimum amount of stress or changes to your schedule.
  1. Review your time blocks regularly. Make adjustments as needed. If your tasks change, or you find that they take more or less time than you thought, modify your time blocks to take the new information into account.
  • Reviewing your time blocks will also give you the chance to see when you’re most productive. If you do your best work in the morning, schedule more important tasks during these hours. Reviews will help you evaluate your productivity levels and decide which parts need attention.
  • Another advantage of doing reviews is that it gives you the chance to see if your reminders are working or if they need to be changed. Use alerts on your phone or computer, sticky notes, or traditional alarms to remind you that it’s time to move to the next task. The key is to find something that works for you.

Effective time management can help you finish more tasks each day and feel more accomplished. Hour blocking is a useful method for anyone who is interested in greater productivity, either at home or at work.

8 Steps to an Amazing Life

8 Steps to an Amazing Life

As far as anyone knows, you only get to live once. So, you might as well make it as amazing as possible. You don’t have to settle for mediocrity and a life that fails to excite you. You have the power to create a life that fills you with joy, love, and enthusiasm. Everyone wants to have an amazing life, but you can be one of the few that actually accomplish it.

It’s important to identify what the term “amazing life” means to you. Your amazing life won’t be exactly like anyone else’s. It might be quite different from society’s view on the matter.

Claim your right to live an amazing and exciting life:

  1. Brainstorm your amazing life. You’re more likely to have an amazing life if you have an idea of what your amazing life looks like. Take a couple of days and consider all the possibilities. Consider every aspect of your life:
  • Social circle
  • Romantic relationship
  • Finances
  • Career
  • Health
  • Hobbies
  • Location
  • Accomplishments. You can do some pretty amazing things over the course of your life, but you can’t do everything. Prioritize.
  1. Get rid of everything that is unnecessary. Avoid unnecessary distractions and responsibilities. You probably have several things requiring time and space in your life that don’t provide an adequate return. Get these things out of your life.
  2. Accumulate resources. Making big changes in your life is stressful. However, changes are a lot less stressful if you have plenty of supportive people in your life and money in your bank account. Think of what you need to move your life forward. Focus on accumulating these things.
  3. Get started. Nothing happens until you start doing something. You might need some time to plan and prepare, but time is passing by. It’s important to get started. You can fine tune your approach after you begin receiving feedback from your efforts.
  4. Deal with negative emotions. Negative emotions are some of the most powerful things in the universe. They can stop you from ever pursuing your ideal life in the first place. Negative emotions can also slow your progress considerably.
  • Use one or more of the many tools available to you: counseling, positive thinking, meditation, hypnosis, prayer, or any of the other psychological techniques that exist today.
  1. Raise your standards. You’ll never make a million dollars in a year if you’re satisfied with making $200,000. You’ll never lose those last 20 pounds if you’re okay with carrying them around for another decade. Accepting mediocrity is par for the course, but it’s not compatible with living an amazing life.
  2. Be flexible. Be committed to your goals, but flexible in your approach. You’ll find yourself presented with some interesting opportunities. Some of those opportunities might provide a highway to achieving your amazing life. Keep an open mind.
  3. Be persistent. There will be plenty of obstacles along the way. Are you going to allow them to derail your efforts? You’ll have bad days. There will be times you lose hope. It’s important to keep moving forward. You can overcome any obstacle if you’re motivated enough and don’t give up.

If your life isn’t as amazing as you’d like, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. Create a target, remove the distractions from your life, manage your negative emotions, and never give up. This is the recipe for success for any goal you may have.

Avoid settling for an average life. You can be and experience so much more!

How Finding Your Life Purpose Can Make You Happy

How Finding Your Life Purpose Can Make You Happy 

There’s a quote by Dr. Albert Schweitzer that’s worth pondering:

“The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others. “

Think about this for a minute. Finding your purpose becomes a lot easier when you think about it in these terms. What skills and traits do you have that could help others? How could you build your life, your job, or your business around those skills?

But what does all that have to do with making you happy? Taking the time to figure out how you can help others and then doing just that is a powerful thing. We are social creatures and hardwired to help our community. When we make it a daily goal to do just that it’s an incredibly rewarding experience.

Yes, part of it is because we’ll be thanked or recognized for what we’re doing, but that’s only a small part of it. To be perfectly honest, doing good will make you happy even when no one else knows about it. There’s an internal reward built in. We feel good about ourselves. Our self-worth grows and with it our self-esteem.

Or think about it this way. What would make you feel better? Going about your day shuffling papers, answering the phone and putting in the time required at your desk without much to show for at the end of the day? Or would you feel more fulfilled and happier if you knew without a shadow of a doubt that you made a difference in someone’s life today? What if that paperwork you did helped a family find a better place to live? What if those calls you made ensured that a little girl doesn’t go to bed hungry tonight. What if that class you taught helps a young mom stay home with her baby and still contribute to the family income? What if you found your purpose – whatever it may be – and made a real difference in someone’s life with what you do? Wouldn’t that make you feel happier? Wouldn’t that give you a sense of accomplishment?

Spend a little time to figure out what you can do to help those around you. Think about what you could do to serve others and make a difference in their lives. In other words, spend a little time figuring out what your purpose in life is and how it can impact the people whose lives you touch – be it in person, through a book or via the internet. That’s the beauty of the day and age we live in. We can reach and make a difference in the lives of people across the globe.

Stop making excuses and find your purpose, and with it your own happiness.

I invite you to book a life purpose reading if you need assistance with discovering how you can live your life purpose.
