Freelancers, stay organized, or, why you need time management

When you are a freelancer you find yourself working on more than one project very quickly. While leaving sticky notes over your screen is certainly one way to manage your tasks, it isn’t very effective. Your projects aren’t organized, you aren’t sure how to manage your time, and you find yourself scrambling to keep up all the time.

Freelancers have to be organized and learn a bit of time management. If you aren’t, you’ll be losing time, which in turn means you’re losing money, and of course you’ll be missing key tasks that you need to complete.

You have to learn how to manage your time, so that you know what you can (and can’t) commit to, so that you can pace your projects out to suit yourself, and of course, so you can spend time not only working, but relaxing as well – yes, your brain needs that too.

Take a look at what Traxmo has to offer you in terms of time management, and what you can learn from it.

For instance, you can see how you work during the week.

In the example above, I can see that Tuesday and Friday were really productive, but most of Thursday was wasted. This can tell me that maybe I need to rest more on Thursday, or that I need something new to kickstart my day, or maybe that my client meetings cut too much into my work time.

I can also see not just ‘how’, but also ‘what’ I worked on during the week:

As you can see, I spent most my time working on Project Alpha, and only 10 hours on Project Beta. By the way, I might not need to work more on Project Beta – but this way I can keep an eye on it, and know where I need to put more effort.

These are some of the ways Traxmo can help you make your job easier and more organized.
