How to Schedule your Day for Success

Are your days as a freelance writer going by without getting any work done? If so, you are just like many freelancers. Early in my freelance writing career I was the same way. I was not very efficient, and for this reason I found it difficult to complete every task for a given day. Soon enough I woke up, and from there I became a more efficient worker.

Here are a few tips that can help you better schedule your day:

1. Use a to-do list. Are you tired of me saying this yet? I know I harp on this fact on a regular basis, but it really is a great idea. If you are going to make the most of every day you need a list that is complete with all the tasks that must be tackled.

2. Try to schedule breaks. This is very difficult to do – I have found this out over the years. That being said, try it out. For instance, I schedule one break for breakfast and another for lunch. For the most part I am able to take these breaks every working day. You may think you will become a more efficient worker if you cut out breaks. Unfortunately, this is not always true. Both your mind and body need rest from time to time. Don’t push the envelope by working straight through the day.

3. Don’t be afraid to change your ways. It is easy to get into the habit of doing the same things, day after day. Even though a schedule is a good thing, there are times when you will need to break the mold for one reason or the next. For instance, maybe a client wants to schedule a call during your lunch break. In this case you will have to move things around a bit to accommodate this task.

These three tips will allow you to best schedule your day for success.
