Managing your time can be a challenge. It's easy to get overwhelmed with tasks that have to be done literally right now, but that don't really matter in the scheme of things. That's how 12-hour work days happen, it's how business plans get derailed, and it's how you lose the time that you would spend on the things that really matter.
We'd like to offer 3 quick tips that can help you to get more time.
1. List the top 5 tasks that are taking too much time
It's a pretty simple thing to do and it won't take long. Sit down and write the top 5 tasks that are stopping you from doing the things you want to do. Now, how are you going to get these tasks done? You could slowly grind through them yourself, but you've probably tried that approach before. Instead, why don't you try picking the single worst task on that list and post it as a job on Freelancer? Posting your job is free, and you might be surprised at how fast and painless it is to get that task done! It's far better than losing countless hours on it yourself.
When you're stuck for ideas on a creative job, you can easily lose hours trying to come up with the perfect solution. Sometimes it'll happen, but sometimes you'll end up settling for an awkward idea that doesn't quite work. Either way, it'll cost you time. Instead of dealing with the stress and hassle, just post a contest on Freelancer. Rather than having a team of one person working on an idea, you'll have a team of hundreds. It's not limited to just graphic design either. You can get creative writing, interface design, videos, websites, marketing assistance, and more. Post your contest now and see how the crowd can work for you.
Sure, it's a cliche, but even cliches have some truth to them. If you have a repetitive task, why not try automating it with software? It's easier than you think. If you're trying to get more customers for your business, why not get a new website, logo, or even an iPhone or Android app that can attract them for you? If you're stuck with some boring data entry, why not hire an expert freelancer that can do it for you? There's no sense working harder on tasks where you can work smarter.
