Have you had a problem managing your time?
Here, timeboxing is the answer.

Timeboxing is scheduling your daily routine and apply it in reality. It sounds boring to do the same every day. But it helps you to decrease wasting your time to think about what you should do next. Or simply procrastinating yourself by gaming, sleeping, or else because you feel you don’t have a task to do. But in reality, you have a lot. It happens simply because you don’t have a concrete task on your mind. You don’t have a plan.

By timeboxing, you make a schedule of your day like in school when you have a school schedule. The difference is you have almost the same schedule every day. First, you need to make a list of what you do. After that, you plan the length of the time of your task. And it’s better to measure it by counting your time with a stopwatch or other apps because it’s clear and more precise. The more concrete action/task, the better the schedule is. And don’t put so many goals in a day, except you are an expert. Be simple, precise, and have enough time to finish your task.

When you try to apply your schedule, and in the middle of your task there is a distraction, you can revise your schedule for the next day. Identify the distraction first. Is it a continuous distraction/happen again in the future or just for that day. Then, you decide whether you should revise it or not. (n)
