Time Blocking

The habit of scheduling your tasks on your calendar

At the simplest level, time blocking simply means reserving time on your calendar for something you have to do.

This something could take the form of a very specific task (for example, fixing the font on the web client), a grouping of tasks around a specific activity (for example, coding against a number of tickets in Jira), or even the same with no intended tasks (for example, office hours where you’re available to help other engineers or to assist customer-facing teams with bugs).
