Guys, this is a very real problem. I‘m running out of Freelance Friday post ideas!
This post is brought to you by the fact that when I can’t focus or get good work done… I stop working!
So yesterday and today, in between finishing and starting things, I’m taking time off to bake a ton of squash, play with the cat, cook delicious meat, and volunteer at the office at my church.
When I get back to a structured set of hours, I know I’ll actually use those hours to do good work and make a huge dent in my to-do list. None of this “gazing at the computer alternately closing browsers and wondering what I should be doing” nonsense. Either working or not-working, no in between!
I think that means the Freelance Friday message for today is: if you freelance, use that free time you’re so grateful for to actually take free time!
If you could take a random off work in the middle of the day…. what would you do?
PS Let’s assume you’re magically transported home for that hour.
