Ifeanyi your writing is getting better and better :)
Agree, writing isn’t as glam as it’s often made out huh? A clear plan definitely helps. Not just on Sunday. But the night before each day. And on the day. Lots of reminders — it’s so bloody easy to get distracted! By the laundry, the washing, sleeping, social media!
I use a to do list using the online program Asana. That helps me keep on track.
Being accountable is really helpful too. I’d say really knowing your purpose or mission helps with that.
Yes meeting people is a good one too. That takes effort and planning. Another good idea is to work in a studio. I work around other creatives who run their own solo businesses too. It’s awesome to have the social interaction (and parties!) you’d usually get at work — without the politics!
Other things that help: Having a good work life balance. Exercising. Chucking the phone into another room when working. Having the big picture: knowing what you want to focus your efforts on. Then breaking it down into the weekly and daily plans.
Thanks for sharing lovely! :) Have a fab day!
