I'm more of a "when I have a moment" type of person. Although, I'm convinced I would be a lot more productive if I decided to spend a predefined block of time.

Whenever I decide to do that, I feel a lot more productive. There is a sense of urgency. I know I have 30 minutes, or an hour or 2 hours to work on my project. I have to make progress during that block of time. I feel a lot more focused.

"When I have a moment" takes away the importance of it, I feel. If it's not important enough to have a dedicated spot on my schedule, why would I have to focus on it and work on that project for weeks or months on end?

With that said, I struggle to consistently set out a block of time for my projects...

That's true... When you say making progress in that time.
