Chunking for productivity

A few meetings and some freelance work and we’re slowly getting back into work mode. My break was good enough, but you can always use more, right? I didn’t get as much reading done as I’d hoped, but I did get to the pool a few times (yesterday’s post tells you why I was late getting there, and today was a similar story, although I didn’t slide away). I also managed to get a video out, and am aiming to have one out each week for this whole year if I can. I was able to do that in the latter part of last year.

Either way, today was a reminder that I need to do a better job of chunking my work time. One job took me much less time than I had calculated, and one much more. I did a whole lot of procrastination before getting started, but if I had set my schedule better, I can’t help but think I would have gotten more done. I’m scheduling chunks in for the next few days as we speak.

One chunk I have been doing daily, my ‘hour of power’ has been really good. I think it’s a matter of extending that.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
