Today’s Big Idea: It’s not enough to just to schedule a time-block for yourself. Following through takes the cooperation of the people around you. Being successful requires creating a culture of time-blocking.
What is The ONE Thing Workshop? My name is Josh Friberg. I am a lifelong trainer. I am a certified trainer of The ONE Thing Workshop, built off the best-seller by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. Who is this for? The entrepreneur, business owner, or leader looking for greater productivity, lower stress, and how to balance well in your professional and personal life. We are going to go deep into making your life amazing, not by doing more, but by doing less.
Four steps to help you develop a culture of time-blocking.
1. Enlist Support – Explain the value and purpose of what you are doing.
2. Ask questions – Could this question wait until I am finished?”
3. Don’t be subtle – Create a barrier for people who want to interrupt.
4. Give it time – 66 days or more will be necessary to make this a habit.
Teach the people around you to give your time-block the same weight they would to a meeting with another person. Explaining the importance of what you are doing to others and ask for their support. Post obvious signs and reminders to protect your time. Be patient and give this technique the time it needs to become established.
