Use the Amazing Power of Batching to Maximize Productivity & Efficiency in 2023

Batching

🚀Boost Productivity Hack: Batching your Tasks💼

Batching is a simple yet powerful technique that can help you save time and improve your productivity. The idea is to group similar tasks together and complete them in one go, instead of switching between different tasks throughout the day.

By doing this, you can save time and reduce the mental effort required to switch between different types of tasks. This can also help you to stay focused and minimize distractions, leading to better quality work and greater overall productivity.

In this post, we will explore the how you can use Batching to Maximize Productivity as well as some tips and strategies for implementing it in your daily routine.

Ways to decide what should be batched

  1. Similarity of tasks: Grouping similar tasks together can increase efficiency and reduce the need to constantly switch gears.
  2. Time of day: Batching tasks based on the time of day when you are most productive can help you make the most of your energy and focus.
  3. Location: Batching tasks that can be completed in the same location can save time and effort that would be spent on transportation.
  4. Tools and resources: Batching tasks that require the same tools or resources can save time and minimize the need to set up and tear down.
  5. Deadline: Grouping tasks that have similar deadlines can help you prioritize and manage your time more effectively.
  6. Energy level: Batching tasks that require high energy level together can help you to be more productive, and those that can be done with less energy later on.
  7. Interruptions: Minimizing interruptions by batching tasks that can be done offline or with minimal distractions can help you stay focused and get more done.
  8. Teamwork and collaboration: Batching tasks that require teamwork and collaboration can help you work more efficiently and effectively with others.
  9. Prioritizing: Batching the most important and urgent tasks first can help you stay on top of your to-do list.
  10. Flexibility: Keep in mind that unexpected events may occur and try to have some flexibility to adjust your schedule accordingly.

Short list of ideas that you should consider Batching

    1. Writing scripts
    2. Reading & replying to emails
    3. Shopping lists
    4. Billing clients
    5. Paying bills
    6. Sex
    7. Laundry
    8. Meetings
    9. Meal prep
    10. Home repair
    11. Gift shopping

Batching Specific to Coding

  2. stick with as few architecture
  3. Get all variables at one time (isntead of 1-off)
  4. store up your data together and use fileappend once (instead of 20 times)
  5. Functions / Classes

Consider Time blocking: Block your time so you can be more productive
