Have you thought about how to batchwork, but you're just not sure how to get started batchworking? In this episode of The Power in Purpose Podcast, I teach you how what batchworking is and how to do it–step by step.
I’ve had a unique relationship with batchworking– it’s been a relationship that’s spanned 10 years, and we’ve never really gotten it right. To be honest, I’ve been trying to batchwork since the very beginning of my first business.
Block scheduling? Done it. Group tasks? Tried it. The reoccurring theme of it all? I failed, over and over and over again, and could never get myself to adopt this working technique or routine.
My friends raved about it. Gurus online swore by it.
I couldn’t get through a solid hour before I quit and opened up my inbox to answer an email that really didn’t need to be answered.
What I’ve discovered in my journey to try and work more efficiently is that we get really set in our habits. We develop work habits over years of working a specific way, and it's challenging to try and change them into more productive and healthy habits.
So… if you’re like me, and you’ve tried “batchworking” a bunch of times and failed within the first 20 minutes, this episode of The Power in Purpose podcast is for you.
Today, I’m revealing how I finally got batchworking to WORK for me, and how it can work best for you.
Maybe you're asking, what is batchworking?
Batchworking is how you can get more done in a shorter (promise!) period of time. You group similar and/or repetitious tasks together and do them all at once rather than one at a time.
Batchworking is perfect for…
- Social media posts
- Updating client projects
- Meetings and client calls
- Pinterest content
- Sales forecasting
- Content creation
- Photographing your products
- Creating monthly graphics
- …. and honestly, the list goes on and on!

I am not a blogger, wedding planner (although I studied it), I am an attorney in RSA(or lawyer as you might call it from where you’re at). I’ve tried batch working of various forms from sending invoices on specific dates or answering emails at specific times of a day or scheduling specific times for meetings or scheduling specific times for drafting documents…. and I’ve never had success BUT after listening to your episode and implementing your steps…I am excited to say…that batch working is a habit. Thank you for breaking it down to simple steps that made it a reachable goal.
