Day Theming is a powerful productivity technique, and this Trello template is what you need to get started. The idea is to theme your days, focusing on a single type of work
Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey practice this as their productivity hack! Here is what Jack Dorsey practices:
All my days are themed. Monday is management. At Square we have a directional meeting, at Twitter, we have our opcomm [operating committee] meeting. Tuesday is product, engineering, and design. Wednesday is marketing, growth, and communications. Thursday is partnership and developers. Friday is company and culture. It works in 24-hour blocks. On days beginning with T, I start at Twitter in the morning, then go to Square in the afternoon. Sundays are for strategy, and I do a lot of job interviews. Saturday is a day off.
Why practice this technique?
- Sky-rocket your productivity
- Less (or absolutely no) context switching, meaning more focused work
- Get discipline in your work routine
- Avoid multitasking, the deal-breaker of everyday work life
