Here’s why Marc Zao-Sanders’s book “Timeboxing” is worth your time.

I recently picked up “Timeboxing: The Power of Doing One Thing at a Time” by Marc Zao-Sanders. I have to admit, I wasn’t too excited. It seemed like another self-help book promising the ultimate productivity solution. But you know what? I was pleasantly surprised!

This book is different. It’s more like having a chat with a friend over coffee, not a boring lecture.

Here’s why I think it’s worth checking out.

Ever feel like your day is a total mess? Like you’re juggling a hundred million things at once? Zao-Sanders talks about timeboxing, a technique that helps you take control of your schedule, and your time! You prioritise your tasks, then block out specific times for each one. Suddenly, your day feels calmer and you can handle every curveball.

“Timeboxing” might sound a bit strange at first. It’s a bit of a buzzword, right? But trust me, it works. Imagine tidying your room and sorting everything out properly. That’s what timeboxing does for your day. You set clear boundaries for each task, so you’re not all over the place, trying to do everything at once.

The key here is being intentional. Zao-Sanders says to think of your day like a personalized playlist. Focus on one thing at a time, and forget multitasking. He even uses stories about successful people like Carl Jung and Steve Jobs to show how focusing on what matters most can help you achieve great things. They built empires one step at a time, and Zao-Sanders says, “If they can do it, so can you!”

The book itself is brilliant. It’s really clear and easy to follow. Zao-Sanders gives you practical steps to follow:

  • Ruthless prioritising: Get rid of the mental clutter and figure out what’s most important.
  • Become a time whizz: Block out specific time slots for each task.
  • Set boundaries: Start and finish times for focused work, no distractions.

Now, Zao-Sanders is honest – timeboxing might not be for everyone. Some people prefer flexibility, while others like routine. Some want laser focus, others need a bit of freedom. He gets it and offers options for different preferences. There’s a bit of a learning curve too, like any new habit. But practice makes perfect, right?

Overall, “Timeboxing” is a great resource, but remember, it’s not a magic solution. It might not work for everyone, but it has the potential to be a game-changer. Building good habits takes time and discipline, but this book could be the kickstart you need. Fancy giving it a go? See if timeboxing can transform your productivity!
