One of the things that I constantly struggle with as a content writer is time management. While working from home is quite advantageous, it also requires quite a bit of discipline if you are planning to get any work done. Some of the actions I took to ensure I have more time to write are: Switching of the TV while working. I used to think that it is quite cool to have the TV on in the background while working, but I realized I concentrated more on the programs than the articles I was writing. I deactivated my personal social media accounts. I realized that I spent too much time chatting with family and friends online rather than writing. I kept my business accounts since I need those for networking. I came up with a writing schedule for everyday of the week. This means that I know when it is time to write and when it is time to do other things. I stopped procastinating. No more excuses. I am a writer so I write whether I feel like it or not. If I am to earn a full time income as a writer, I realized that I have to be consistent and write on a regular basis.At the end of the day I am normally glad that I forced myself to write. I plan my week ahead and get most of my personal stuff done on the weekends. This includes laundry, shopping, meal planning and getting everyone else in my home organized for the week. This makes sure that I waste less time running around and more time concentrating on writing. I am curious to know how other freelance writers or any other person who works from home manages their time so as to maximize their productivity. So how do you manage your time?
