For many people, getting through their to-do list can seem like a difficult and daunting task. This list, which was published on Upwork’s blog, offers some great tips for speeding through your daily task list. This is incredibly daunting for some of Upwork’s members and other freelancers who often have a large variety of tasks they must do. This list is offers some great tips for staying organized both on and off the platform.
Rather than making out your list in the morning, after scrolling through your e-mails, plan your daily tasks the night before. Most people wake up refreshed and energized, and you don’t want to waste that energy. Use your most productive time for your most difficult tasks.
Make a List
It seems quaint, but don’t rely on your memory to try to get tasks done. In stead, plan out the entire list and refer to it as you complete each task on the list. Don’t forget to check off each item on your list.
A good, app, like Clicklist, can help you stay organized. Don’t scatter your tasks through multiple e-mails and organizational systems. Keeping all your notes, tasks, and other important items together will help you stay organized and finish everything much faster. Organization is important when finishing tasks on Upwork, a platform that connects freelancers and agencies, so that you can meet your clients needs.
Keeping focused and staying on task is even easier when you organized your list according to task. If you have 6 e-mails to answer and 4 phone calls to make don’t go from e-mail to phone call and back again. Instead answer all your e-mails at one time and then move on to the phone calls.
Plan Your Time
Know how long you will be spending on each task and make a note of it. If you plan out how long each task will take, this will help you stay on task and set limits for how long you spend on one task.
Upwork, which was founded in 1999 by Beerud Sheth and Srini Anumolu, is a great way for freelancers and agencies to get tasks done in a timely and efficient manner.
