How to Block Schedule in a Planner

how to block schedule


People always tell me that it’s crazy how much I get done in a day.

Want in on the secret?

I’m not a super woman. I don’t have extra hours in my day (although sometimes I need like 36…that would be awesome). I just manage my time really well.

One thing that has helped me manage my schedule is block scheduling. It helps me see how much time I’m spending on different areas of my life and to focus on one thing at a time. It keeps me in balance. It breaks down my day into manageable chunks.

I do scheduling in my Passion Planner. There is a printable version, if you’re interested in trying it. You can read my review here.

I explain how I block schedule in my planner in this video:


I was originally going to add the next video to a separate post. I didn’t want to make the block scheduling video too long. I decided it was better here, as a follow up to the first video.

If you’re interested in how I set up a routine for myself, check out this video too:

Have you used block scheduling before? Are you thinking of trying it out?

If you would like individual help creating a schedule or routine for yourself, visit my Work With Me page and consider scheduling a Time Management Consultation. On Skype, we can discuss how to fit more into your day and use your hours in ways that move you forward toward your goals.
