Welcome to episode 5 of the Lifestyle Entrepreneur Podcast.  Today we are talking all about Time Blocking and how to stay productive even when you are taking some time off…. like when the beautiful summer weather hits!

One of the biggest challenges entrepreneurs face is with time management.

It is so easy to procrastinate when fun is on the horizon! When the summer weather hits, we long to be at the cottage, sitting outside, or enjoying a drink on a patio somewhere.  But, when you are running a business, you really can’t afford to be doing that – at least not all day every day.

This episode is going to shed some light on where you should be focusing your time and energy in your business, so that you can enjoy the summer holidays!.  Specifically, we are going to look at how to use time blocking as a time management strategy to help keep you on track, keep you productive and save you a lot of grief when September hits and things go back to full speed.

So, what is time blocking?

It is you, carving out time slots in your day, that are devoted to specific activities. And when used mindfully, you will be prioritizing what activities you do, in whatever time frame you have allowed for. 

In this episode, I walk you through how to categorize and prioritize your business activities – giving you access to a roadmap to design YOUR perfect schedule.  With 4 simple steps, you will learn the importance and the how to’s of planning for downtime, so you remain productive and profitable!  

I have created a sample Time Blocking Schedule that I use for the summer months, and I have also included a blank template – making it easy for you to get started! You can download the template from this page by filling in the form.  (Don’t worry – I never spam!) 

Get ready to time block your way to summer success!
