Just a quick one today – planning is an issue most freelancers struggle with. I’ve got a huge issue with planning, simply because I can’t. I use Achieve Planner most of the time, by Effexis, because it’s a solid program and helps me focus on what I’m actually supposed to be doing. Well…most of the time. I’m still not very good at sticking to my weekly calendar as it’s planned out (mainly because I find it a faff to look at the calendar and then switch to the actual tasks outstanding), but I also designed my own basic planner system to use alongside it, specifically for blog deadlines ‘etc’.
It lets you record your guest post commitments, plan effectively, and teaches you a little foreplanning along the way, which is always great.
You can download it, at no charge from here: there are basic instructions in the file with it. Enjoy!
