8| KEEP YOUSELF PRODUCTIVE
Timings will continue to exist and missing your tasks deadlines can be a problem. The reasons may vary as spending too much time on social networks and/or having problems managing your own time.
Keep your work organized and give all your best
It is essential to keep discipline, and work focused.
If you’re a workaholic or find hard to organize yourself may also become hard to adapt. You may not be able to determine the time to stop or stop working by any distraction, this will make you lose time and productivity.
Being a freelancer does not mean you can do when and how you want. Even with all the freedom that the profession brings you will continue to be a professional and you should be able to keep your work organized and give all your best. Only then you’ll get customers and give them a positive impression as this will allow you to get more work.
Many ideas come when you are not at your workplace, and you may lose/forget them because you didn’t write them down. These ideas most often are lost and later will make you waste time looking for new ones.
Discipline yourself, all the time management, customers and business offers, requires a strong will and focus. When work starts accumulating and deadlines get shorter this usually means that you must and should have more discipline. Set a time of the day to estimate the amount of work to do.
You should have rules to work and management to meet the deadlines and optimize the time to guarantee more projects.
