With only three active clients (four, if you count all of the writing for my own websites), I shouldn’t be running up against deadlines as regularly as I do.
Realistically, my current workload should take no more than three days to complete each week. I should have plenty of time for some self-marketing and finding a couple more clients, but I don’t.
I have been under the impression that I need to learn how to write faster. I’ve been working to determine if the problem is with my research skills, the actual writing, or maybe I spend too much time editing and proofreading.
It took a while, but I’ve finally traced my productivity issue back to my calendar.
It doesn’t work correctly.
Blocked time for one thing spills over into blocked time for the next thing almost every single day. I have tried all sorts of hacks, tips, and strategies to write faster. Finally, I set up a “distraction calendar” and started gaining traction from distractions for my business, and so can you! Join me inside for the details.
