My Top 5 Time Management Tools & Apps

1. Time Blocking

One of my most recently acquired time management tools is time blocking; and it’s quickly rocketed itself to the top of my list! In short time blocking is scheduling all of your tasks/appointments for the day into certain “time blocks”. When I see a task scheduled for a specific time, as opposed to just sitting on a to-do list, I am more likely to actually accomplish it! I have been time blocking in my google calendar (as it is easier to move tasks around), but you can also time block in your bullet journal!

I am planning on doing a post all about time blocking, so keep an eye out for that!

2. Asana

I started using Asana after completing the course “Organize Your Business Like A CEO” by Laura of I Heart Planners. After seeing how she was able to use Asana to organize her entire business, I jumped on it! I love how easy it is to create tasks and projects; it’s also super easy to integrate with other apps.

3. My Bullet Journal

My bullet journal will always be near and dear to my heart. I love using it to jot down notes about my day, my weekly schedule, and of course to do lists! It’s a great way to be creative and productive. You can see how I set up this months’ bullet journal here.

4. Google Calendar 

I use google calendar hand in hand with my bullet journal, and my other time management tools. As I mentioned earlier I time block in my google calendar; at the beginning of the week I start to fill in tasks and appointments that I know I have – I even block out time for sleeping! My one tip is to not underestimate how much time it will take to complete a task. It is always better to block out to much time, and be able to get more done in a day, as opposed to not completing everything.

5. My Digital Planner

I use my digital planner in a similar way as my bullet journal. My bullet journal tends to be my more personal day to day tasks (household, personal appointments, etc); whereas my digital planner contains more business related tasks. I particularly love using my digital planner for my editorial calendar. I use it to track my social media scheduling, and my anticipated blog posts for the next month or two. See how I’ve set up this month’s digital planner here.
