Upwork has made it possible for almost any individual to make money from their home using their intuitive and straightforward freelance platform. They were first created after a rebranding event by their parent company Elance in 2015. The company is based out of California and has allowed 12 million registered freelance professionals and 5 million business clients to connect and collaborate independently and remotely. The result of this impressive feat is a total of $1 billion worth of business being conducted annually on their platform. This has made Upwork become one of the largest freelance platforms to have ever existed.
In addition to the platform they provide for freelance workers Upwork also has a blog which they publish content on that is related to personal productivity. One of the most recent posts that they have made on their blog involves techniques and skills that will allow you to move through your to-do lists quickly.
A to-do list has the potential to be one of the most powerful tools to enhance your personal productivity. In order to experience the greatest benefits from them, you must know how to use them effectively.
Upwork gives a strong recommendation to being proactive with your task lists. Do not wait until the morning of the day that you need the task list to write your list. Instead, you will experience much better results if you begin writing your to-do list the night before it is needed. Then in the morning, you can use the time that you would have spent creating the list being productive. You can also use this time to organize the list better so that way you can take a systematic approach to accomplishing each task.
Upwork recommends that you begin by grouping tasks that are of a similar nature together into groups. You can then use these batch of tasks and rank them in order of importance. Begin by working on the most important tasks first. At the end of the day, if you find that you have not completed each task on your list, you can have the satisfaction of knowing that at least the most important items have been accomplished.
