Weekend Quick Tip: Settle Down when Frustration Sets in

As a freelance writer you will face periods of frustration. You may become frustrated with yourself or with your clients. Simply put, there is no way of avoiding this. Fortunately, you don’t have to let frustration kill your career. Remember, no matter what job you have you are going to face bad times. You cannot let them keep you down and out for too long.

When frustration begins to set in you should take a step back and settle down. Even if you are extremely upset or angry you need to concentrate on calming down before you move forward. Remember, you are not going to do yourself any good if you carry this frustration in your back pocket day in and day out. For instance, if you are frustrated with a client you have two options: you can take your bad mood out on them or you can calm down and work together to fix things. As you can imagine, the second option is the way to go. Nothing good ever comes from taking your frustration out on others. In fact, if you do this you can expect to lose clients.

Is this easier said than done? It sure is. There have been times when I was so frustrated that I wanted to stay away from the computer for a few days. But soon enough, after I settled down, I was ready to fix the issue at hand and get back to work. As you move along as a freelance writer you will learn how to better deal with frustrating situations.
