The Block Schedule System! What it is, how it works, and how it will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

OH MY LIFE-CHANGING! The Block Schedule System; how to schedule your day in blocks. This has seriously changed EVERYTHING for me! Such a simple concept! Video and free printable included! From

If you have followed me on Instagram for a while, chances are you have heard me refer to my “Block Schedule System” many times. The Block Schedule System is something I made up years ago that has increased my productivity by 10-fold (or more!) and is hands-down one of the most useful, viral, and effective principles I share in all of my Productivity Boot Camp productivity program (psst use the code FCFBLOG for 10% off!).  It not only helps you get more done in a day WITHOUT burnout, helps with time management, and makes your home insanely stress-free, but will also magically free up HOURS of time for you to fill with things that fulfill you most, and you never feel like you have time for!

If only it babysat and cured cancer, it would basically do it all.

It's one of those concepts that is extremely simple, but is literally life-changing…but takes a second to explain and understand! Thus, by popular request, I've decided to do something a little unconventional. Though we have an hour+ long video about it in Productivity Boot Camp, I have decided to make a condensed (but still thorough, don't worry) version of this system – what it is, how it works, and how it will CHANGE YOUR LIFE once you try it! Not only that, but I have included a FREE PRINTABLE so you can make a block schedule of your own, TODAY!

First, a few quick things to note before we get to the video…

  1. The video is long, I fully understand. But plleeeeeaaassssseeeee be sure to watch the ENTIRE video! I can't stress this enough! I answer FAQ's at the end, I show a second scenario with a completely new set of circumstances and examples, and 99.9% of the questions that arise will be answered by the end if you just stick it through! So put on your headphones, let the dishes pile up or choose a giant pile of laundry to sort, and just listen/watch while doing something else and you'll get through the video in no time.
  2. My examples are simply my examples. Yes, my schedule and circumstances are different than yours. Isn't that awesome?? This system is DESIGNED TO WORK FOR EVERYONE! Single parent? Student? Work full-time? SAHM? Retired? Amazing! Keep watching and just keep in mind that my examples are just examples and your only job is to understand how it works, and plug in your own life instead of mine!
  3. Try it before you knock it! You may watch and think “no way, this could never work for me, this crazy lady truly is crazy!”. Well…I am a little crazy. You have that right. BUT…aside from that, just try it! Consider it my ultimate challenge! I DARE you to try it and tell me how it's not helpful for you. Truth is, it may not be. Maybe somehow you'll be an outlier that this system simply can't help. But lucky for just about everyone else on the universe, there is at least ONE nugget that will help 100% of you become more productive or manage your time better. That's how confident I am in this system.


Ok enough blabbing, let's get on with it!

  1. Never thought of my day as a ‘high school schedule’ before…. but WOW!! Fantastic. Thanks so much!

  2. Most days I’m scatterbrained and overwhelmed trying to do so many different tasks and always feeling behind! I’m excited to try this! Hoping I can get my husband to try it for a week too!

  3. Hey, Jordan! Love your Block Schedule and thank you for the free printable! How did you make your color-coded and editable? Cheers!

  4. K, but how do I get a super-cute colorful block schedule like yours??? I’m totally on board! This already fits in so well with how my days already flow, I’m excited for the focus this will add to it. Thank you for sharing!

  5. I just printed my weekday & weekend block schedules and set my alarms. This is going to be a game changer, I just know it. Thank you so much for sharing. I love both your productivity & budget boot camp programs. You are amazing. Keep doing what you’re doing. You’re an inspiration to me and countless moms out there. I hope to meet you and Bubba in person someday. Come to Canada next? 😉

  6. I recently graduated and am definitely struggling to figure out how to be productive on my own without feeling so overwhelmed that I end up procrastinating and even more stressed out as a result so I am super excited to give this a go! I am even more excited about being able to learn all these incredible life skills early on! This is the kind of material schools should be teaching students for home room.

  7. I made 2 separate ones – 1 for the 5 days I work, and 1 for my 2 days off. I added the background colors to make it fun and pop out when I look at it. I’m getting serious about my productivity!!

  8. This is my second day using it. WOW! I have now found that missing time! I’m in school for my MSN and working full time. This is an amazing concept. Thank you so much for sharing.

  9. I LOVE this! I’m amazed by the Choresticks as well! I’m definitely getting my 2 boys in check with that system! How do I get my husband to be a part of it all? he’s still “old school” when it comes to chores. (husband works outside the house and wife inside!) aaarrrg

  10. What a great idea! I’ve struggled withs chedules because I always get derailed and then feel angry with myself and give up. This macro schedule would be much easier for me. I’m going to try it right away.

    Found you through Youtube and I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts!

  11. I love this video! I am an LDS stay-at-home mom. I recently had our 9th baby and I just needed some motivation to know how to manage everything on my plate. Thanks for teaching us what you do!! I appreciate your example!
