For many freelancers, the inability to keep some semblance of a regular schedule in the midst of a chaotic existence is a constant source of anxiety and lack of productivity. Insomnia, sudden and frequent interruptions, visiting family, travelling for weddings, and the average sick day (or series of sick days) – all of these occurrences (and many others) can cause the delicate balance of a freelancer’s schedule to careen off course. This can unfortunately result in missing deadlines, losing clients, and other not-so-awesome consequences.
Which is why in today’s post I’m going to show you a method I developed during a prolonged bout of insomnia that has helped me stay on task no matter how random my day becomes. Its all about breaking your ideal work day down into flexible time blocks so that you can rearrange them at a moment’s notice.
