Get Ready for a Productivity Boost.
Agency owners, SMBs, solopreneurs, and students are increasingly adopting the practice of time blocking, also known as monotasking or time chunking. It’s a straightforward concept: you block off time in your calendar to dedicate to a specific project or task, working without interruption. Even luminaries like Elon Musk swear by it.
The many benefits of time blocking are well-documented in the business pages. But are the latest round of productivity apps truly necessary?
How Time Blocking Apps Have Perfected the Process
Research has shown that time blocking can improve productivity by as much as 80%. We all know it’s possible to achieve impressive feats when you focus for an hour or two. With time blocking, your schedule becomes your touchstone and helps the fight against procrastination, replacing to-do lists and ensuring that you follow through with your objectives.
By scheduling your time in advance, it’s easier to say no to non-priorities. You can guard against perfectionism and avoid being a people pleaser. A recent University of California study found that it takes an average of 23 minutes to get back on track after a workplace interruption. That’s almost 5% of your workday!
It’s counterintuitive to manage your system the old-fashioned way, with cumbersome paperwork, as this only serves to add unnecessary hassle around storage, organization, and search and retrieval. It’s a good job, then, that today’s workers realize the advantages of managing and keeping their time blocks in digital form.
For example, Aika’s time blocking app enables much faster and deeper analysis, together with vastly improved time estimate planning.
