NEW AND IMPROVED with a spiral binding, four months of planning pages, enhanced interior design, and an updated introduction – this daily planner deploys the power of time blocking to help you focus on what's important.

Since bestselling author Cal Newport introduced The Time-Block Planner in 2020, time-blocking has taken the world by storm. From Tik-Tok to The Today Show, time-blocking has been touted as “near miraculous,” helping people get significantly more done with their limited time. Now, Cal Newport has redesigned his renowned planner based on your feedback.

New features include:
  • A spiral binding so the planner lays flat
  • Five daily spreads and a newly condensed weekend/weekly-planning spread per week
  • An increase from three to four months’ worth of planning pages
  • A firmer cover with rounded edges to help prevent bending and warping
  • A revised introduction with Newport’s latest insights about the power of time-blocking.

The core idea of time-blocking is to move beyond a simple task list and instead partition your working hours into blocks assigned to specific activities. This allows you the take better advantage of what time you actually have available—more effectively protecting hours for deep work and finding more opportunities to batch shallower efforts into efficient sprints. Newport's new and improved The Time-Block Planner is designed to help you seamlessly integrate this strategy into your daily life, instantly upgrading your ability to avoid distractions and consistently accomplish things that matter.
