Block your time. Two ways. First way covers how you schedule your day. Too often people make To Do lists. Lists are great for organizing ideas and keeping track of what you need to pick up from the store but not scheduling your day. If you have a To Do list for the day and 8 hours to do it then that list is probably going to take the full 8 hours. Work grows in relation to the amount of time you have to do it. This is where blocking your time comes in. Blocking is basically making appointments with yourself. It’s a high sign of integrity to make and keep appointments with yourself and if you can’t keep them then it’s very difficult to keep appointments with others. So set yourself a specific time for a specific task and keep to it. Set yourself a timer for however long you think that project will take and when it goes off, move on to the next thing. It’s hard at first and you won’t be able to get everything done in the time allotted but keep at it and soon enough you’ll find yourself achieving tasks in the time you’ve allotted. Also by setting out your schedule in blocks you’ll get a great idea of how busy you actually are. Once you see how busy you are it’s that much easier to execute Tip Number Two: The Art of Quitting, and to cut unimportant tasks out before they even find their way on your schedule. If Ben Glass can do it, so can you!
