Hey guys! It’s my first post here, so apologies if I don’t get something right.
I’m about to get to five years on fiverr, and after all this time I’ve learnt the consequences that working too much can have on your body and mind, so I just wanted to share some advice. After the first couple of years, I started using two main apps: OmniFocus Pro and Toggl.
The former is a task manager app, and it has done wonders for me. It allows me to organize my work in and outside fiverr, as well as making sure I don’t forget to do the important stuff in my life (go to the doctor often, take days off, go to the gym, etc.). I highly recommend using OmniFocus or other task management applications (I’ve heard great reviews about one called “Things”), specially if you deal with a lot of orders and have to manage multiple projects at the same time.
The latter is a time tracking app, and I can’t recommend this one enough, it really opens your eyes to the way you actually use your time instead of thinking of the ideal way you think you use your time. I get monthly reports on how much time I spent working on fiverr, how much time i spent working out, etc. And having that info is very helpful to me when I want to make an effort to focus on my mental health.
Hope you guys found those interesting! I’m curious to know if there’s anyone out here on fiverr that uses these apps or other methods to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
Happy new year!
