Slots are simply time slots: half or full hours which I devote to something. If a new idea —not strictly related to what I am doing— pops up in my mind, I write it down to remember it, but I get to it only when it is the time to commit to the related slot. Nevertheless, this way of working poses a dilemma: where would my distraction go if I was capable of focusing?. Furthermore, this is an ideal lifestyle, but definitely far from my actual way of living; I am trying to compromise and both develop and approach to this method slowly and carefully.

The Slot Philosophy is awesome because each slot can be rearranged everyday, and its accomplishment can be tracked through self tracking apps such as Loop Habit Tracker (which is the one I use).

Tools #

  • Timelines, an iOS only app for time tracking. It is incredibly similar to my concept of Timeline, but it has a pro subscription which is not worth it.
  • Monofocus, setting WIP short-term tasks and get periodical reminders to focus specifically on one single task only
