● How Ashao’s winding journey led him to offer help with productivity and efficiency to others
● Today’s challenge: how to avoid distraction from our most important work when there are so many demands on our time
● What it means to be “highly effective” in our businesses (Hint: it doesn’t mean doing more things faster!)
● How time blocking can help harness our focus and cut everything else out
● Three phases of time blocking:
○ Take a high level, big-picture view of your most important priorities:
■ Health and Self (Schedule time for sleep, movement, and growth.)
■ Family and Relationships (Don’t let work infringe on this set-aside time!)
■ Service and Work (Work begins and ends at specific times.)
○ Time-block your weeks according to daily “themes” so your effort can be more focused. (Google Calendar can help!)
■ Make time for planning. (It is helpful to look ahead to the next week on Friday afternoon.)
■ “Maker time” is for the tasks that are the most demanding and move your business forward.
■ Manager time is for administrative tasks that support your high-value work.
○ Time-block your days.
■ Use a “power up/power down” ritual to transition to and from work and family times.
■ Schedule breaks for energy renewal during the day.
■ Put high-value work at earlier times in the day.
● How creating habits will help develop processes that become a natural fit
● How Ashao has seen a “night and day” difference in his life by implementing time-blocking strategies
