We all want to be more productive in our freelance writing businesses. Increased productivity — of the right type — leads to increased income and increased satisfaction from our work.
That’s why I’m happy to share this excellent infographic from Quill.com. It does a great job laying out seven important myths of higher productivity and then providing key actions that will help you get more done.
Key Actions for Increased Productivity
… that are discussed in the infographic:
# Focus on your current task, not the clock.
# Take frequent breaks to move, stretch, or grab an nutritious snack.
# Start your work day with the most difficult task, not something easy so “warm up.”
# Prioritize your to-do list.
# Focus on completing one item on your to-do list before moving on to the next one.
# Minimize meetings with clients, and make sure all meetings have a clear purpose, agenda, and start and end times.
# Break work into smaller, more manageable chunks.
# Delegate when feasible.
