For the past decade, I’ve been on the lookout for habits and routines that will keep me organized and productive. A few years ago I stumbled upon a technique called time blocking.
The majority of my work and personal life exists in the digital realm. I (like most people) use cloud-based apps now more than ever. On the surface, your computer looks pristine—free of the physical clutter that used to come with bloated desktop software. But just because you can’t see the mess, doesn’t mean it’s not there.
For the past two weeks, I’ve been using the Pomodoro Technique to get my work done. And I have to say, I’m surprised by the results. So far it’s proven to be an incredibly efficient way to get both my client work and personal responsibilities off the plate.
With the new year upon us, I decided to take some time and write out some goals (not resolutions) for 2018.
