It was the middle of a too-hot summer, and I was already booked to the gills. Then, I got an offer — from a NYSE-traded, major corporation — to write my ideal project: a 20,000-word e-book. Right now. For a high four-figure fee. If you’ve ever wondered how to write an e-book fast, when you’re already busy… that was my challenge.
I took the writing job, and learned some new productivity tricks along the way. In this post, I unpack them for you.
My first big tip is to remember one of my Newtonian laws of freelancing: Work expands to fill all available space.
When you take on more work, you naturally find ways to be more efficient. You stop goofing around and get serious. So, don’t be scared to take on more! You’ve got this.
The more you do, the more you can do. So if you get more work, don’t freak out.
