One of the biggest perks of freelancing is that it gives you the freedom to work from home.

You can save money commuting to and from work, you don’t need to rent an office space, and you get to have an extremely flexible schedule.

It sounds like a dream come true, right? It absolutely is, but there can still be a few drawbacks.

One of the most prominent challenges that freelancers face is separating work-time from everything else.

Fortunately, the folks over at Millo have some fantastic tips that will help you schedule your life around working from home.

“Tip #3: Say NO to Grey

Because we love to work (is design really work?) we sometimes forget that the body needs food, or the kids need clothes, or your spouse is coming home expecting a hug and time to talk about the day. So onto the schedule go meal times, break times, and personal time.

Work in black time, and live in white time. Black time gets spent on your business. White time gets spent on everything else. Remember that there is no grey area.

As you focus on one or the other, you’ll get more done in less time.”
