trouble with taking too many breaks or getting distracted? This
printable can help keep you on task! Use highlighters, markers, or
colored pencils to shade in the appropriate color every 30-60 minutes.
- Green: Productive! You’re doing what you need to be doing.
- Blue: Neutral. This can include tasks that you need to do such as eating, commuting, or showering. Earned break time also goes in this category.
- Red: Unproductive time! This can include neutral time that has gone on too long, as well.
At the end of the week, look over how you did and make a game plan. You might decide to move your work time to times of the day you are more productive or make a pact with yourself to be more productive each day by eliminating at least X number of red blocks a week. You could also make other uses out of these, such as creating a school or work schedule. It’s up to you!
The file linked above is from 7AM-11PM. If that time schedule doesn’t work for you, download a blank version here to fill in your own times.
