If you’ve ever started working on a project and then noticed you got sidetracked or spent way too much time on it, there is a productivity tip that could help you get more things done in less time.
It’s called “Timeboxing”.
Mindtools.com explains it this way:
Many people approach their work one task at a time, and concentrate on each until they complete it, however long this takes. Timeboxing is different because it encourages you to focus on time instead of tasks. To use this time-management tool, you allocate a certain number of hours or days, called a “timebox,” to each activity. You then use this time – and only this time – to complete the task.
If you’re like me and work a little better when there’s a deadline, this could help make 2019 the year where you get things done!
