131: Optimally Behind

March 7, 2019 at 4:04pm
This week, we discuss the idea of being perpetually behind on work, how best to deal with clients who need immediate help, and more.

High points include:

  • How to diagnose if you're actually behind in a bad way
  • Balancing between completing current work and earning new work
  • Planning your time so you're not behind the frickin' 8-ball all the time
  • The secret to managing expectations of clients
And, of course, a bunch more.
