How is your Freelance Writing Career Progressing?
Every so often I like to look at my freelance writing career and where it is headed. Is this something that you do on a regular basis? It is important to know how your career is progressing. This will ensure that you make the best decisions as the days go by.
What should I be looking for? This is a difficult question to answer because everybody is at a different stage of their career. On top of this, your goals are not going to be the same as mine or the next person. That being said, I always look at the past, the present, and where I want to go in the future. This alone shows me if I am making enough progress, and of course, how the future is shaping up. Obviously, if you look at the past few months and realize that you were lazy it is safe to say that you will be anxious to change things around in the days to come.
Donâ€™t be surprised if you look around and realize that your career is not progressing as you thought it would. Even though I am happy with my current client load and income, there are some things that I wish I would have done differently earlier in the year. It is never fun to play the â€œwhat-if gameâ€ but looking at the past and learning from it is the only way to ensure that your progress in the future is what you want it to be.
If you are happy with the progress of your freelance writing career you should continue on the same path. On the other hand, if you are not heading in the right direction now is the time to make a change.
