1 — Don’t overextend yourself

If you hadn’t already gathered, I’m not a natural hustler.

2 — Budget your time like you would your money

One of the key principles of a successful budget, be it tracking time or money, is how realistic it is.

3 — Aim to complete 3 tasks per day

This is a fairly common tip, though some people choose to do more than three tasks, depending on how long tasks in their field usually take.

4— Set your goals and work backwards

One of the things I struggle with as a full-time blogger is working what I should be concentrating on.

Final thoughts

Don’t work too hard. Don’t feel guilty about not working every hour of the day. Plan tasks outside of work too — I always write down what days I’m going to change my bedding and wash my towels and I find it bizarrely comforting not having to remember crap like that throughout the week.
