So, I am am a fulltime freelance content creator for almost 2.5 months and all seems fine. Had a nice holiday, had some projects to work on, and still there are projects planned in the near future. I think I can say I have had an easy start.
Last week, after finishing a project I have been working on, it seemed harmless to take a little down time. I intended to have a break for an hour. That one hour became a four hour ‘orange is the new black binge session.’ All of a sudden my day was over! Could have been creating new content but, instead I was consuming content.
It sounds cheesy but, time is going by so fast! Back when I was still working my ‘day job’, I guilted my 36 hour work week of being in the way of making my own dreams come true.
So after quitting my job I expected to have an unlimited amount of time to make it work for myself. Every day, the whole day to work on the stuff I am passionate about.
But, these past two months I kept having the feeling that I have no time. I felt so busy without actually doing anything. Before I knew the day was over. The only progress I made was being very up to date about the stuff my Facebook friends were doing. I didn’t make any content, did not learn anything relevant. Just wasted days scrolling through Facebook, Instagram and making my face look like a dog on snapchat…
