"A plan is a list of actions arranged in whatever sequence is thought likely to achieve an objective."
The first part of the week was stressful... there were frazzled nerves and even tears. It was that bad! I was really questioning my ability to manage freelancing. Much less to ever think of taking on another client.
Up to this point, I've been waking up at a decent hour (between 7:45 and 8), working out to a Netflix dvd, do my daily chore, taking a shower, eating breakfast, and then getting so discouraged that I wasn't starting work until 11 or so. And, then I wouldn't get a chance to eat lunch until minutes before heading to Sylvan at 3:30. This was simply not working.
Today, however, on a whim, I decided to immediately start working after waking up. Sitting there in my pajamas I realized I had just had the most productive two hours of the last month and a half. It's now 1:30, and I've completed the majority of today's work. And, I feel great. I'll probably spend the next two hours cleaning up a bit, planning dinner, job searching, and checking in to make sure there are no freelance emergencies before heading to Sylvan.
I like this plan. Now, I've just got to figure out how to squeeze a workout in.
