    STEP 1: Brain dump

    Start off by brain dumping everything that is on your mind. Any work tasks, meetings, appointments, personal errands and any random thoughts you have. Getting it down on paper helps to clear your head and focus on sorting all the tasks you have to do.

    STEP 2: Prioritise

    Once everything is on paper, pick the three most important tasks you need to get done today. Prioritising your tasks help you stay focused and feel less overwhelmed. These are the tasks you need to complete first each day – anything else is a bonus.

    STEP 3: Time-blocking

    Finally, use time-blocking to map out your day. Time blocking is a technique for scheduling your tasks and activities by assigning them specific time slots throughout your day or week. By allocating specific periods of time for each task, you can ensure that you are focusing on one task at a time, minimising distractions, and making the most of your time. 

    To get started with time blocking, refer back to the list you made in Step 1 with all the tasks you need to complete, estimate the time it will take to complete each task, and assign them specific time slots in your calendar. Start by mapping out any non-negotiable meetings, followed by your three most important tasks you identified in the previous step. 

    Remember to schedule breaks and buffer time between tasks to avoid burnout and unexpected interruptions. In any gaps, place in any other tasks from your brain-dumping in Step 1.By time blocking your tasks, you can increase your productivity and achieve your goals more efficiently.
