I recently made a list of things I want to learn, either for the first time or to improve upon in 2017. I was thinking about how many things I didn’t know, or didn’t know as well as I’d like to, and once it got past a few I decided I needed to write them down.
I had somewhat of an epiphany* yesterday while listening to someone complain about their computer-related problem to me. While I’m technically (no pun intended) in I.T., it seems people think I also have a degree in psychology.
I don’t, btw.
For the first time in my freelance life (which is still part time for now), I have more than one job going on at the same time. I used to fear being able to juggle multiple projects at the same time, thinking I would also feel guilty for working on one when I should be working on the other.
But so far, I’ve been able to balance several projects, my full time job, and continued learning pretty well. One thing it has forced me to do is be extremely efficient with my time management. I’m always looking for ways to improve my process to get more accomplished in less time, without a decline in the quality of my work.
So fascinating. I have been thinking about this a lot lately and this video helped put some things in perspective.
