We’ve all been there: endless “To-Do” lists, back-to-back meetings, and looming deadlines. The pressure can leave you feeling overwhelmed, fatigued, and unable to keep up. Read on to amp up your productivity and make the most of your time!
Time Chunking Techniques
Once you start working, you reach peak productivity in about 60-90 minutes. After this point, your focus starts to decline as your energy dips. Try this technique to help sustain your productivity over time.
How To: Work for 60-90 minutes, and then rest for 20 minutes. Repeat as needed.
If you find that your energy or focus comes in shorter spurts, this technique can build your attention span and create a better workflow.
How To: Work for 25 minutes, then take a 5-minute break. Complete this cycle a few times and then take a longer break. Repeat this process as needed.
Putting it Into Action
Step 1: Prioritize your “To-Do” list. Be specific about your goals and what you can realistically tackle within the day. Start with the most important and relevant task.
Step 2: Set a timer for your desired work period. Follow the time chunking techniques for a morning or afternoon this week. Do you feel more accomplished and on top of things? Less overwhelmed?
