Start your Day off Right

As of late, I have been thinking a lot about how to become as productive as possible. Many freelance writers think that becoming more productive means working more hours. This can be the case for some, but not everybody. After all, you can only work so many hours before you begin to burnout.

I have found that one of the best ways to increase productivity is to start your day off right. Of course, this means something different to everybody. That being said, the three tips below can help any freelance writer to increase productivity by starting their day right:

1. Do not sleep-in. I know, I know. Some of you guys like to work at night, and sleep during the day. If this is the case, and it is working for you, continue with this lifestyle. But personally, I like to keep a more “normal” work schedule. Over the past few months I have been experimenting with what time I wake up in the morning. I have found that 630 am has led to the most productive start. While this may sound early to some of you, it works out perfectly for me. Simply put, you need to do your own experimenting in order to find what works best for you.

2. Don’t start working until you are awake! It is one thing to get up early, but another to be on top of your game. Trust me, if I was not capable of writing quality content at 630 in the morning I would not be getting up this early. For some, all it takes is some breakfast and/or coffee to get up and moving. No matter what, you need to be energized and in the right frame of mind when you begin to write.

3. As I have said in the past, you need to know what tasks you are responsible for in a given day. I keep track of this by putting together a to-do list at the end of every workday. This way, when I wake up in the morning and head to my office, I can look at this list and know where to start. This saves a lot of time trying to get organized, and in deciding a work order.

By starting your day off right, you will find that you are becoming a more productive freelance writer.
