    This is a great post, Catherine! I agree with you about single tasking, multitasking ends up being a huge waste of time for me. I used to struggle big time with saying no to work when I was building my freelance writing business but I’ve learned to pass on projects that are a huge time suck or are below my target rate.

      Thanks for your comment, Rebecca! It can be hard to break the multitasking habit, but single tasking makes so much more sense!

    These are great tips! I especially love the “say no” idea….it’s so common for us to always want to say yes, because it feels uncomfortable and awkward to say otherwise, but it can feel SO empowering!

      It can be awkward, but worth it in the long run! Thanks, Jodi!

    Some really great tips! I definitely don’t have set hours, which leads to working pretty much nonstop some days because I’m so inspired, and then I don’t want to touch a keyboard for a few days. I always get my tasks done though, so somehow this is working for me right now, haha. But I will keep your advice in mind! I especially like your “closed-door” policy; to completely shut off work and avoid the temptations of notifications. 🙂
