If you utilise your time effectively, you’d be surprised how much you can get done in one day. If you’re freelancing or self-employed, it can be difficult to maintain a schedule that you can follow consistently.
I’ve put together some tips from my latest book that can help you on your way:
1. Make A Schedule
Make sure you allocate time to the things that need to be done, but you also have to make time for flexibility. Things may come up that you’re not expecting, or opportunities may come up that are more important than others. Another thing you need to make time for is your personal life. Have good time for rest and good time for social networking. This allows you to maintain a balance between work and personal.
2. Pace Yourself
You can’t run your business if you’re burned out. Pace your moves. Make sure your moves have a purpose. It’s easy to get lost in your passion. You’re doing everything to make it work and you forget about yourself. Make yourself a priority too. Health is the best wealth!
3. Remember, you’re the Boss!
Yes, you’re the boss. You decide what’s worth you’re time and what isn’t. There’s no point committing to a job that you don’t have the time or resources for. It’s okay to turn down an opportunity if you know it’s not right for you.
4. Time Management Tools
In my latest book, How To Become A Freelancer & Make Money On Your Own Terms, I list various time management tools that can help you manage your time effectively. Make more time to do what you love alongside your main income:
