Freelance Week 06

The winter is wearing on me now. That cycle of wishing it were hot again when it's cold, and it's only February. Contentment. That's the name of the game.

Entering month two of my freelance journey and I feel great. I feel like I keep telling people I'm so busy, which is true, but I'm enjoying every minute of it. Balancing work time and family time is probably the biggest challenge. But I keep going back to a conversation I had with my friend and mentor, Ben Pasley, about visualizing your tasks and then marking them off when you finish them. Sounds easy enough right? But the art of ruling your time is a tricky one.

It takes time to make time.

Moving on. As I continue work with my clients I also have a few personal goals I'd like to complete by month's end.

1. Finish and release Steedicons Volume 2

2. Get the Folly shop up and running with our new shirts

3. Get my new instagram photo show hung up at our local coffee shop

A few final thoughts about time management. Making a schedule doesn't have to be a straight jacket on your life. I like to think of it more like my favorite t-shirt. But you can imagine whatever you want. All I'm trying to say is don't let your schedule rule your life. Take time to sit, pray, meditate (every day) on what's most important. Then go do that. The words of Solomon come to mind, "Where there is no vision, the people perish". Thanks for reading. Have a great week.
