I spent my initial 15-minute session generating content for my Provocative Phrase Friday writing prompts on the Grist for the Muse blog. By tackling these all at once, I generated about 3 months-worth of content for these posts. Granted they still need some edits and select the perfect provocative photo prompts to complete the posts, but the hard work is done. I spent about another 30 minutes putting together enough content to last well over 6 months.
Batching tasks is one of the ways that you can save time by handling several closely related tasks at the same time. Some of the common ways to do this:
- Make all of your phone calls at the same time
- Save errands in a specific part of town and do them in one trip
- Pay bills all at once at a specific time of the month
