1. Create reasonable to-do lists
2. Track your time
3. Minimize distractions
This is a great reality check for freelancers who struggle with procrastination or bad habits they’re unaware of.
4. Keep a bullet journal
5. Break things down
Otherwise, context switching eats away at focus and productivity.
6. Say No!
If you find yourself turning down many projects, take it as a good sign that it may be time to increase your rates!
7. Bill by the week
8. Tailor your time management to your work
UX designers and researchers are paid to focus on things in extreme detail. You just can’t do that if you’re flitting from one project to another multiple time a day.
