Last September I set out on a mission to help freelancers grow their business, by publishing a helpful freelancing blog post every Sunday.
While I was able to keep up at full speed for over three months, I recently missed sending out 3 posts.
Here’s the thing.
Publishing high quality, actionable content every Sunday, while being busy with client work during the week, got really hard.
I ended up writing during the weekends, and that came at the expense of valuable time with my family. So at times, I felt like I was publishing incomplete posts just to add a checkmark and move on.
But that’s not helping either of us, and it’s definitely not how I want to do things.
When you’re truly passionate about something – one setback won’t stop you. So I will keep publishing posts on a consistent basis.
But I am a strong believer in quality over quantity, and want to make sure that you are getting actionable, valuable, high-quality content from each of my email.
So from now on I’ll be sending you an in-depth freelancing post every other Wednesday.
I’m excited about this change, because it means I can serve you better.
One takeaway from all this:
Sometimes you overextend yourself and set goals you don’t meet. And that’s ok – it simply means you’re passionate about what you’re doing and as a result you're aiming big.
But when you do miss a goal, you have two options: change things in your life and strive to make the original goal work, or set a new goal – one that you’re more confident you can meet.
Bottom line? Freelancers need to be flexible.
Next Wednesday I’ll be sharing a post about Tools & Resources Creative Freelancers Need. It’s something I’ve been working on for a while, and I think you’ll like it.
