Back in 2006, the second year of my personal development blog, I wrote about a simple time boxing concept called the Power of 48 Minutes. It’s a technique that I had learned from a presenter at a speaker’s conference. Simply put, you turn off all distractions, set a timer for 48 minutes and work on one and only one thing until the timer goes off. Then you take a 12-minute break. You can repeat this as many times as needed.
Since 2006, I have used the time-box system hundreds of times. The technique has significantly enhanced the way that I work and has led to the creation of a simple, yet efficient, personal time management system.
