Let’s talk about batching tasks. This goes for any big tasks which consist of smaller, sub-tasks. You may be wondering if you need to start batching your tasks so that you can work more effectively, so I’ve got these four questions for you to ask yourself.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you can use my favorite actionable tips below to start batching your tasks together so that you can complete high quality work in LESS time. Who wouldn’t love that?
Now that you have these tips for batching tasks, I want to give you a good example of creating a system that will WORK for you.
Just be sure to implement those strategies and create multiple batches within a system, or a process.
For example, let’s say you’re a blogger. You can make use of your blogging platform’s scheduler to schedule blog posts ahead of time. So that seems like one big batch, but within that batch, you can create many batches.
So let’s say you’re doing 10 blog posts at a time. First, you have a batch where you research for your blogs. So you spend time doing the background research so you know what you want to talk about.
Next, you can do another batch where you are writing the rough drafts. So that way you’re able to get your ideas on the paper, you’re not stressing about the grammar, or spelling errors, or anything like that. You’re just writing out the rough draft.
Then you batch your task of shooting or finding your images to go into these 10 blog posts. Then batch a task where you edit your blogs. So you get in that mindset of looking for grammar, and double checking spelling and those types of things.
Lastly, you schedule them. That’s how you can really quickly and easily schedule 10 blog posts in a very short amount of time, because you batch each of the mini tasks underneath it.
Look at some of these big tasks and see if you can even break it down to create mini batches.
