It’s no one’s business how you get stuff done.
People may notice your constant posting to social media and assume you must you have a lot of extra time on your hands.
When accurate thinking dictates that it’s far more likely you:
- Prioritize the activities that bring in business
- Have a plan and an editorial calendar
- Batch process the creation, editing, and scheduling of your content
Being prolific requires at least one of two things if not both – 1) a plan and 2) discipline. You can get by on a plan, you can get by on discipline. But the two together are near unshakable when it comes to producing brilliant work at a moment’s notice.
People may wonder how you’re able to do everything you do in a day.
Your clients may wonder why you’re not in communication. They may ask you when their projects are going to be completed when it seems like you’re only prioritizing your own (when it’s far more likely that you’ve scheduled out a month’s worth of posts in advance).
So long as you’re in integrity with the deadline that’s been created with your client, there are no issues, no matter how much they whine about you being halfway across the world, spending time on other projects, or enjoying your life as you see fit.
Anyone who watches you that closely doesn’t have a life, and they may even be obsessive to an unhealthy extent. Sure, you may be enjoying life “on their dime,” but if you’re turning in good work, it should not matter.
Which is why, I repeat, it’s no one’s business how you get stuff done. That includes the velocity at which you work, the volume of work you produce, and any processes you use to boost your productivity and efficiency (your own processes, by the way, are your own intellectual property).
If a promise has been broken, then do everything in your power to make it right.
But others should not be permitted to question your methodology, approach, or processes, when you’re fully delivering on the promises you’ve made.
