But if you read further you will understand how freelancers usually waste their time on. Though the time wasters are different for different people we have listed the common tasks freelancers waste their time on.

 
#1 Managing the Emails

A survey tells that more than 600 small business owners (including freelancers) spend at least an hour on the emails. For a few of them, it takes 2 or more hours on emails. Most of the freelancers feel missing out the emails might be a problem but, if they spend a couple of hours checking and replying for the emails they end up the shortage of time for their other higher priority work.

If you need to manage the emails optimally u should have a proper schedule. You can log out your account or can mute the notification for a part of the day and spend some time either before starting the work or after finishing the day’s task.

In addition to this, you can organize your inbox so that you find the emails in shortest possible time with lesser effort. When the email account is organized you don’t need to spend an hour or two for that.

 
#2 Managing the files in your device
×
“Where is the file?” is the most frequently asked question by the freelancer if his/her files in the device are not organized. As a freelancer, you work with many projects and many clients. When you are in a hurry to start your work you don’t pay attention as to where you saved your files and waste your time searching for the files.

If you want to spend less time searching the files you can consider having a digital asset management (DAM). It manages the files in your device and having it has an advantage of keeping your photos, videos and audios managed. It manages all your files in a single location.

 
#3 Managing the tasks

Since a freelancer needs to meet the clients, plan his tasks for the day and execute them, the schedule of a freelancer normally becomes so poor that he is left with no time. A freelancer usually schedules the meeting back to back which results in the poor scheduling of the task.

So, Instead of scheduling the meeting on after the other you can have an hour gap between the two. It gives you ample space to do other tasks scheduled for the day in parallel with the meetings.
