If you want to become flexible, there are many things you need to implement in your routine. One of them is timing measurement.
The first time you work on a task, it will be hard to foresee how much it will take you to finish. But through repetition, your timings will normalize, and you will understand how to schedule tasks to save as much time as possible.
In "how to more flexibility and free time," you acknowledged the three reasons why tracking your timings makes you more flexible. But now, it's time to use those principles to achieve better results.
In the following image, an example helps you track your timings to achieve more flexibility.
If you want to become more flexible, start with choosing the tasks you want to track and the measurement system you will use - for example, the number of words for writing an article. However, if the job has no measurement system, you should start with an already fixed time frame and then normalize it based on your needs.
Once you record each task, choose your unit of measure. In the example, I picked half an hour because it fits my schedule better. Then, start tracking your tasks every time you repeat them, and stop when they normalize. When they do, after many repetitions, you will have reached the required time frame for each task. With this knowledge, you will schedule your days better, achieve more flexibility, and also more free time.
