It’s not uncommon for even experienced freelance web designers to encounter productivity issues. They take on too much work, only to discover too late that their tools or work habits are, in some respects, lacking.
The result: longer hours, missed deadlines, and even the occasional loss of a client. Working harder doesn’t seem to solve anything, and often makes matters even worse. If this is happening to you, the benefits of freelancing you used to enjoy, such as working to your own schedules, not having a boss looking over your shoulder, and choosing your own clients, have gotten lost in the shuffle.
