Time Boxing Productivity Secrets!
No matter your profession, there are likely projects you are avoiding because they are complex.
The procrastination that comes with that wreaks havoc on your self-esteem, and you begin to question what you really should be doing in life.
This is unnecessary because Time Boxing can help tame that procrastination monster.
On the other hand, you may love all your tasks and get so immersed that you lose focus on your real priorities. Once again, Time Boxing can come to the rescue.
No matter what the reason may be when you turn to Time Boxing, the idea is the same. You start by developing a realistic idea of how long a task or project takes you. Once that is done, it is simply a matter of entering that data in your calendar and then getting it done in the time you gave yourself.
When we say it is simply a matter, it doesn’t mean that Time Boxing is super easy. It means there is a formula to follow, and success will come if you stay on course.
Think of it as making your favorite dinner by following a recipe provided by a top chef. You know all the ingredients, how to prepare them and how long to cook them. It is only when you deviate from the recipe that you run into trouble.
With so many demands on your time, it is important to learn and use tools such as Time Boxing to be highly productive and successful.

All this makes Time Boxing a much more effective productivity method that will help you reach your goals and get things done.
Let’s dive in and give a more thorough definition to Time Blocking and Time Boxing and see why they are both important.
