What to do when you Have too Much on your Plate

As you may have noticed, it has been about a month since my last post. Unfortunately (or is it), I have been so busy with regular projects that I have been unable to post as often as I would like.

This leads to one very important question: what can you do when you have too much on your plate?

On one side of the equation, a lot of work is a good thing. This means your clients love you and that you are earning good money. Of course, it also means you are forced to work more hours. Is this something you are comfortable doing?

When you have too many projects and not enough time, here are three tips to follow:

1. Focus on the tasks that are essential to getting every project completed on time (forget about everything else).

2. Need an extension? If so, don’t be afraid to ask your client. Typically, I am able to avoid this situation but it does come about from time to time. Just remember one thing: you need to ask for an extension. Don’t simply assume that this is okay.

3. Extend your work hours. This is pretty obvious, right? While you may think so, many writers don’t realize that this is the easiest way to solve their problem. Over the past month, I have definitely worked longer hours in an attempt to stay on track.

What does your current work schedule look like? Do you have more work than you can handle? If so, try out these time saving tips.
