I’ve written about time batching and time blocking (time boxing) in multiple places recently:
While both pieces are practical, neither one is as convincing as Thomas Frank‘s video above.
Because he used credibility to convince people to try this strategy. If it works for Elon Musk, why not give it a try?
It’s a great video and a great tactic.
If he had created a video like “How to Timebox Your Day” or “Why Timeboxing Is Essential to Success,” it would be much lest interesting.
Instead, Frank tells a story and gives the strategy credibility.
This is a great approach if you want to convince someone to try a strategy or tactic that you know works well. Find someone famous that does it and tell their story.
