How To Create Time

How To Create Time

How you actually have much more time than you ever thought

As I started trying to do more and more projects this year I reached a point where I saw that I never had enough time, I always felt like the days were too short, like there was no way I could squeeze any more work and yet the work kept piling up every day.

And I think that I am not alone on this. The time it takes research, to write, edit, and then redo it a second time so that in the end you search for images make it look decent.

This whole process could take almost a day, and depending on how much you already know about the topic the number can go way up.

At a time where you are ‘’supposed’’ to write three or more articles if you want to grow on this platform. How can you actually manage that when you have other projects at the same time?

The answer is simple really, yet it took me a long time to realize.

Track Your Time

We can think, I only ever log in this site for like five minutes and in this other for 10, so I’m sure its not consuming that much right?

Yet the truth is that the time we spend in all the different platforms can be of hours if we aren’t careful, and if you don’t trust me try downloading Rescue Time, to see how long you spend on each site, and I can tell you that the first report is quite surprising.

Automate

Now that we know where our time is going, and I assume for many of us the answer is social media, the next big question is, how can we reduce that?

Because, the biggest problem here is that we ‘’have’’ to go into each account in order to promote our work.

We need to give it visibility, but the question then becomes:

Do we really have to go to each one of them?

There is no real need to go to each of our social media accounts if all we want to do is post, and that’s because there are many tools such as Buffer that can let you synchronise your different social media accounts and post the same content in all of them at the same time.

Which helps you save a lot of time because you can batch the releases and prepare enough content for at least 10 days if you use the free version.

By using tools like buffer you can get rid of the excuse of having to visit the websites in order to post.

With this you get way more time to work on your projects, because we all know that one of the worst things we can do is to give our brain an excuse not to work, and social media is one of the best excuses for writers and artists.

So try to get rid of as many distractions as you can and set time for deep work.
