Learn to say no
Have you ever encountered that time when you have plenty of projects offered by different clients? and wondering if you would accept all these projects. Surely some of you would say, Yes why not that’s a plenty of projects and it means more income.
Well if you would ask me, I would say no. Yes, I get your point, I’d make more money if I accepted every project I was offered. But trust me, I’ve been there to that position. I’m once a designer who said yes to those plenty of projects and I forgot that I am a self-employed individual that means I work by myself. The result?
Can’t perform and work with my fullest potential and passion through each project.
The rush made me loose focus.
Did not achieved the highest quality of my work.
And the result of this, my client’s satisfaction rate has gone less and because of this, the opportunity to get more future project offers has vanished.
From this experience, I have learned my lessons. Know I often say no to my potential clients to value more my time. By this, I can work with my fullest potential and provide a high quality of work.
You don’t need to say yes to everyone comes your way, learn to say no. Working with plenty of projects at the same time will not help you.
Always choose quality over quantity when it comes to projects especially if you are a self-employed individual.
How about you? would you rather choose quality over quantity or quantity over quality?
