Time Blocks Crush Overwhelm

Feeling overwhelmed by never-ending to-do lists and constant daily pressures? Cal Newport’s approach, that he discusses in this podcast with Andrew Huberman offers a refreshing solution. He focusses on time-blocking rather than traditional to-do lists. By allocating specific hours for tasks based on actual available time, and respecting a strict cut-off time in the evening, this method addresses the pain of daily inefficiencies and the stress of unmet expectations. It employs a principle that won’t work in the first day or even the first few days that you try it. But if you maintain a growth mindset, using the Simple Focus app, and respect your cut-off time, the very act of respecting that boundary will ironically help you to learn to focus better earlier in the day.

Time blocking as distinct from ticking off to-do list items, embraces the real-world fluctuations we find in day-to-day life, allowing for dedicated periods of focused work, or “deep work,” while also accommodating essential personal activities and rest. The approach not only enhances productivity but also ensures personal well-being by setting realistic boundaries for work and leisure.
