When we take control over the passing time
Have you tried another breakdown of Wednesday’s experiment https://coachdanny.ca/2019/08/28/solomotivation-wednesdaymotivation-22/? Let’s try and come to a conclusion. So far, my favourite breakdown is diving the hour into 4. The reason is very simple; everything (or almost everything) is a multiple of 2. I work with several colleagues and dividing into blocks of hours is quite easy. In blocks of 30 minutes (on the hour) makes sense. Time management tools usually have this as their default division. Dividing into blocks of 15 minutes means halving these 30-minute blocks split in two. That works relatively well with a person who manages his or her time in blocks of 30 minutes. However, blocks of 20 minutes, even though its merits are praised by the famous Pomorodo, are difficult to coordinate with the other two scenarios. The reason is sequential, there is no possible alignment, the blocks will always overlap. The sole possible match is division by 6. Here is my conclusion.
- Are you working in a group? Divide by 2, or ideally by 4;
- Are you working by yourself? Start by dividing by 3, and then switch to dividing by 6 after several months. You will then be a master of time.
