Upwork’s Top 10 Tips for Finishing Things

Upwork, one of the largest freelance business platforms in the world, recently hosted an article from ClickUp discussing 10 of the best ways to get things done. Whether you’re a chronic procrastinator or just want to learn some better organizational and motivational skills, this list has everything you’ll need to tackle even the biggest to-do lists.


One of the biggest features of the blog post was pre-planning. This can mean writing tasks down before you plan to do them, creating lists in advance, breaking up bigger tasks into smaller ones (or vice versa), or simply organizing a schedule for when different tasks need to be done. All of it leads back to an easier and less stressful day of work with everything plotted out before you even start, keeping you from wasting time by letting you start right away instead of fumble with organization.


Another tip they focused on was trying to group tasks together whenever possible. Not like, “I can wash the dishes while doing my taxes if I’m careful enough around water,” but in consolidating trips and activities to reduce the amount of time it takes to get through different things. For example, if you’re already headed down to the grocery store, why not stop by and pick up your dry cleaning next door? Even if one item isn’t as high as a priority as another, taking care of as many things as you can at one time helps save time and energy in the long run.


Speaking of priority, one of the key elements the Upwork post highlighted was prioritizing. It’s important to figure out which items both big and small are the most immediate issues. That way, even if some things need to be put off for later, you’ve taken care of all the most crucial tasks at the start. Buying food is probably more necessary than washing the car, so if you’ve only got the time or energy for one of them, it’s best to lean towards the essentials.


Finally, they also stress the importance of delegation. If it’s possible, don’t be afraid to ask for help in getting things done. Whether at work around the house, calling in some support and letting others take care of the groundwork on certain tasks can make everyone’s lives a lot easier.
