97 – How to Use Batching to Boost Your Productivity and Reduce Stress in Business and in Life

My temporary office in Spain

Do you sometimes feel like you’re working on far too many things at once, yet the results are disproportionately smaller than the amount of effort you put in? Or perhaps you feel that one too many things are vying for your attention, and you’d like to find a way to get things done more efficiently, become more productive, and not be too stressed out?

Then this Corporate Warrior inbetweenisode is for you.

Before I dove into the world of podcasting with Corporate Warrior, I lived a fast-paced life sometimes working over 60 hours a week in the IT industry, selling complex IT solutions to business after business and closing multi-million pound deals. It could get quite hectic, but I employed certain productivity tactics and strategies to help me get on top of things and make the most of what I had to work with.

In this episode, I want to share with you the process of batching what it is, why it’s great, and why (and how) you should start doing it now.
