The Ninja Weekly Routine outlines the time blocks we recommend in Ninja Selling and the Ninja Perfect Week provides an example of how these time blocks look when scheduled into your Ninja Planner. (You can find these resources on pages 8 and 9 of your Ninja Planner.)
Notice in The Perfect Ninja Week that not every hour is time blocked and assigned a task. There is still plenty of room in the calendar to add events that may arise or deal with critical items that pop up. However, all of the tasks that are needed to stay on the Ninja Path are allocated a block of time to be completed during the week. For time blocking to work, you must actually do the task assigned during the time block. For example, if you have one hour time blocked to make phone calls put the “Do Not Disturb” sign on your door, turn off your computer, turn off all pop-up notifications on your phone, grab your FORD and RECORD sheet and start making calls. Do not do anything else for that hour. Don’t make five calls and then reward yourself with 10 minutes on Facebook. Focus, Focus, Focus!The Perfect Ninja Week

Remember, the goal of Ninja Selling is to increase your income per hour so you can have a life. Time Blocking is a great way to get more done in an hour, and if you can be more productive each hour, your reward will be more income per hour and more time to spend doing whatever you chose to do.
