The hardest part is self-discipline. You have to control yourself. I've been a procrastinator my whole life. I always wait for the last minute to start freaking out (yes, I freak out before I actually do my job lol).
Things have been changing once I try to digitize my work. Before I only use notepads and phone reminder. But lately I've been introduced to some of the productivity apps and the result is wonderful.
I onboard my client on a project management software called Quire. I don't have to use emails to update them with every change. They can just log in and see the progress.
Being a freelance has its up and down, but to me, it's one of the most rewarding job :)
Thanks for sharing your story. I'm also a procrastinator so this helps!
