I've been freelance writing for the web for about four years and I always have had this same problem. It's intensified in the past year. Other freelancers have always told me to have lots of irons in the fire when you're freelancing, and never to depend on just one source. Well I do have lots of irons in the fire, but just the thought of completing everything I have to complete overwhelms me. Even if I try to do one thing at a time, just the thought of doing even one thing reminds me of them all. So I often get paralyzed and fall behind. Even though I try to stay organized with spreadsheets and to-do lists. I always feel like I have an avalanche of things to do. Does this happen with anyone else? How do you handle it?
