Just like outsourcing your freelance work to hired help, you can outsource household work as well. This will depend on your financial status. If feasible, you can hire help for alternate days. Make sure that you are making enough money to be able to hire outside help.
Take A Big Trip Instead Of Small Ones
All of us usually have errands to run on a daily basis. The smart thing to do is to combine all small errands within a single big trip so that we can get all the outside work done on time. This will help us save precious time, fuel as well as energy.
Know How To Use Your Low Time
While freelancing, everyone spends some time waiting. If we are smart enough, waiting time does not necessarily have to be wasted time. You can use this time to respond to emails, answer calls or update your ‘to do’ list.
Eat Healthy And Quick Meals
Try and eat as healthy as possible. This will keep you fit and will also keep your mind fresh. A healthy sandwich or a salad can be the best meal to have while working.
Organize Your Household
Just like you organize your office stuff, you must have your household things in place; this will help you save a lot of time. Lesser time will be spent looking for lost things and more time can be used productively.
Dont Try To Be A One Man Army
You should be intelligent enough to realize that you can’t do it all on your own. Divide chores between family members. Make sure that everyone in the house helps around the house. Don’t make it your responsibility to cook, clean, wash and organize the house along with work. Divide chores responsibly and equally.
Make Health Your Priority
Nothing is as time-consuming as an illness or injury. These setbacks can take a toll on your work. You might end up losing valuable contracts. Make sure you follow your doctor’s advice and keep in shape and good health as far as possible.
List Down Your Priorities
Don’t lose focus of your goal in life. Make sure that you remind yourself of your priorities every day. Try and have a work-life balance so that you can draw maximum satisfaction out of work as well as out of your personal life.
Working as a freelancer can be a very enjoyable thing. You just need to remember that time is of utmost importance. Set your priorities straight and you can be the king of your domain. Remember, in the world of freelancing time is money. Make sure to prioritize accordingly and reap the benefits as we go along.
