Working from home requires discipline. Especially when you have more than one contract to handle. How to manage your time wisely while juggling with multiple gigs?
Plan your days at home
Set up specific hours so you can focus on your work at home. Even though you are not sitting behind a desk at an office, it is important to plan your days as if you actually have a shift. This will help you gain enough discipline to get the job done.
Set realistic goals
Before accepting gigs, make sure your calendar really allows you to get everything done. It is more important to accept less contracts and have satisfied clients than having to rush through everything.
Manage your free time wisely
Use some of your free time to fill out the cracks. Your free time is your to use as you please but taking one or two hours when possible to wrap up some work can be very rewarding in the long run. This will allow you to finish things that you might not have had enough time to complete during your working hours.
Have an accountability partner
While you cannot depend on others to do your part, it is always good to have someone to hold you accountable and remind you of what needs to be done. It could either be a family member, your spouse or even an assistant.
