Picture this. You are a freelancer with multiple clients. This means you have to attend to the different tasks and needs required from you for your projects. Sometimes, there are tasks that clash with each other in terms of schedule and other factors which will entail you to multitask in order to fulfill everything. You are seasoned at this as an honor student and an officer of different organizations back when you were still in college.

People used to glorify multitasking but many studies have proven that multitasking does not actually benefit your productivity. When you do multiple things at the same time, your work and your overall well-being suffers.

It doesn’t mean however that you cannot accept multiple jobs, especially given the nature of your career. What you actually need to do is have different focused hours. When you’re doing a job for one client, you should be ultra focused in performing your best for that particular job. Your notifications for another client should be turned off. This means, instead of taking pride in multi-tasking, what will actually benefit you is being highly organized.

clear working schedule

Highly organized entails that you have a clear working schedule and that you stay committed to it. Of course, you’ll allot extra time if ever a project takes longer than planned. The bottomline is that you should be following a schedule. If it’s necessary, communicate to your clients your working schedule so that they are on the loop with your timeline.

It also means that you have to be working in an environment that inspires and motivates you to finish your tasks. As mentioned, you need to be extremely focused with your tasks in order to do all of them. This means, all distractions must not be entertained. This also means you need to be in the right mindset while doing your tasks. A clean and dedicated environment will help you get to the right headspace needed to finish a particular assignment.

Working on multiple jobs will also require you to be efficient and highly productive. You can finish a certain job in the least possible amount of time. If you finish early in one task, you can have more time to rest or you could quickly jump to your next agenda for the day. When you are productive, you are able to tick off everything in your daily to-do list.

It’s not always easy to be efficient because this is also dependent on your motivation and discipline. It’s not everyday that you will wake up motivated and that you will have the discipline to finish all your work assignments. This leads us to our next point that you have to be ready for the war in your head. When motivation is running low and discipline is something you cannot count on for the day, then it is a big help if you have the right tools in your arsenal to keep you focused.
