In my last post, I mentioned the possibility of making life more productive by separating activities into one hour chunks. Would it actually work in practice though? I decided to put my money where my mouth is, and give it a try.
This is a sample of how a day’s routine might look like.
How did actual execution feel like though? To be honest, it felt like I had a time bomb ticking away all the time. It did keep me focused though, and I knew I had that one hour to finish whatever the schedule had for me. Nothing else, but the assigned task.
The thing about my concentration though: I only managed to maintain focus for thirty minutes before I started to drift off. Things will get better with practice I guess?
Why this works: multi-tasking is a dreaded productivity killer, because you accomplish tasks by focusing, not by time slicing the way a CPU would do it.
More to come as my experiment continues.
