We freelancers seem obsessed with speed. There are many articles out there to instruct us on how to get more done in less time.
Not only that, but I’m often contacted by freelancers who are looking for ways to do their work more quickly. The common thinking is that the more a freelancer does, the more they will earn.

In this post, I’ll describe some of the problems associated with trying to accomplish too much. I’ll also address one reason why freelancers try to work too fast.

We wait to see if we got the project we applied for. We wait to hear back from a client. We wait to get payment after sending out an invoice.
In this post, I’ll share over a dozen productive things you can do while you wait.
