What You Are Doing Wrong When it Comes to Time Blocking

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 395

Are you a working mom who is struggling with creating and sticking to time blocks? In this episode of the Purpose Driven Mom Show, Cara shares valuable time blocking and productivity strategies tailored for work-at-home moms. 

Cara shares how many people make mistakes when it comes to time blocking. Time blocking is meant to allow you to focus a portion of time on similar tasks, but it can be done incorrectly. One of the big mistakes for time blocking is when making time blocks too small or too big. Time blocks of 3-4 hours are great as it provides good flexibility to get things done. Another mistake is creating time blocks that look the same. It is important to create time blocks that fit with the day you have, so they will look different each day.

Cara shares the “micro three” concept for creating time blocks as well as transition times to create buffer and more. Listen in to learn more!
