What Is Time Management? Tips for Managing Time Effectively

One of the most effective skills you can have in life is effective time management. If you’re not managing your time well, you won’t be able to reach your professional or personal goals.

People who are inclined to procrastinate and waste time, know all too well how important managing their time is. So if you’re serious about achieving your goals, not only do you need to set those goals the right way, but you also have to get serious about avoiding distractions, staying focused and improving your productivity.

We all want to be more productive and make sure that we get the most out of the day and while there are loads of time management tips available, we often need a helping hand.

With the various features available on BlockSite your time management schedule will never look better. You’ll be able to get everything you need to do, done using the best time management techniques and still have time to browse your favorite sites and apps!

Block Lists

Create your block list on BlockSite by adding websites that waste your time and make you procrastinate. Available on both mobile and desktop, with BlockSite you can add as many sites as you wish to your block list and make sure you can’t access them as long as they’re blocked, meaning you’ll stay focused and increase your productivity while you need to do things online.

Work Mode

Start making your productivity soar! The work mode timer feature enables you to control your time via the Pomodoro technique timer. The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 80’s. The technique was developed using a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. Each interval is known as a pomodoro, from the Italian word for tomato, after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used as a student. So now, you too can break down your work into intervals, helping you keep your focus in check when it matters the most. We promise you’ll be more productive than ever before.

Redirect Sites

Using BlockSite, you can redirect sites that make you unproductive to sites that help improve your productivity in a few clicks! It’s entirely up to you which website you choose to be redirected to or you can see the automatic BlockSite redirect to a funny image. For example, if social media sites such as Facebook keep you from studying, add a redirect to Facebook and make the redirect go to a more productive website such as Google – where you can search for relevant materials for your studies.

Scheduling

When you need to stay on track you can set up your own daily schedules and routines with the ‘Scheduling’ feature on BlockSite. Set days and times when you can access certain sites and apps and the times when you can’t because you need to work or study. It’s the best time management planner you could ever wish for! While you’re at work, for example, you can set a schedule on BlockSite that blocks all news sites when you need to be in the office – say Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm – stopping you procrastinating and reading the news. Simple!

Sync

Control your website usage and manage distractions whether you’re at home or on the go! BlockSite is available on both desktop and mobile and can be synced between devices. This means that the sites you block on your desktop, can also be blocked on your phone, so you stay productive and have total control over your time wherever you are.
