Upwork And A Powerful To-Do List

If you’re not familiar with Upwork, you should be, because it provides an opportunity like no other for independent business professionals to connect with businesses. Building a client list, and making sure you get paid is not always easy, but Upwork takes the complexities of being a freelancer out of the equation.

Let’s say some time has passed, and you’ve managed to land several great gigs, what then? How would you go about managing all of that work as a one member team?

Most would turn to a To-Do, but for those who don’t it might be because they never work. Wrong!

A to-do list is the best way to make sure you get your work done on time, and they can help with getting rid of certain levels of stress that come with the job. The key is making sure your list is as efficient as you want to be.

First things first, a useful to-do list is composed well in advanced, such as at the start of the work week. It’s also in one place and not serval, to be a centralized command center for the week ahead. A powerful to-do list also contains everything you need to get done, and not just the small, but also the big. With the brick break them down into the small. Sure, the list will grow, but little tasks add up.

Now that you have a detailed list made in advanced, the next best thing is to label or tag each task. When do you expect to get started on it, how long do you think it will take you to complete it, or how much energy will it take you? With this in mind, you can better prioritize your list. Do tasks that require more energy, that will take you a little more time, and that is due towards the end of the week early in the morning. Little by little they’ll get done, and you be on time. For those smaller, less taxing task, do them throughout the day, maybe in batches to help speed your work.

Keep all of this and mind, and your powerful to-do list will do more than bring you success, perhaps reestablish your faith in them.
