Upwork Productivity Guide

One of the most productive practices used by freelancers is to create to-do lists. Creating a to-do list is suggested often but rarely explained in detail. Here are some suggestions to improve the list-making process:

Write down everything! Minor tasks can be forgotten which can lead to stress and other problems if a deadline is involved. By writing everything down, mental energies can focus on action instead of wasted on recalling information from last week.

Prepare lists the night before. Energy levels are higher at the beginning of the day and it’s best to use that energy to accomplish as much as possible, rather than figuring what needs to be done that day.

Keep the to-do list in one place, rather it be an app on the phone or notebook. The more spread out your to-do list fractions are, the more likely it is to forget to check “that one” notebook where the task was written. Checking multiple lists also wastes valuable time.

Prioritize the tasks on your list in order of urgency. Obstacles in life can prevent certain tasks from being completed. By completing the most important tasks first, the negative effects from these obstacles can be minimized.

Review the list frequently to identify tasks that are repeatedly being neglected. If a task adds no apparent value, take steps to eliminate it from the routine to make room for more important tasks.

It is easier to make lists with subtasks in digital format. By creating a list with dropdown sub-lists, it is less likely to get overwhelmed by the many subtasks that need to be completed for a single task on a list. This also helps manage larger tasks that can takes weeks to complete.

Categorize tasks by the medium or location the task must be completed in. By grouping all “email” tasks together, it can be more efficient to complete multiple, similar task in a sitting instead of writing one letter, grocery shopping, then writing another.

Appropriate tasks according to the amount of time and energy is required. It is illogical to attempt a highly demanding task when tired at the end of the day. Less energy-intensive tasks can be saved for the evening as well.


Talk Fusion Is The People’s Company

When Bob Reina created Talk Fusion back in 2007, he created it for the people. He knew they wanted and needed something like this. He just had a sense about it, and when it comes to a smart businessman like Bob Reina, his senses are never off. They are always on and he is always thinking business. He knows that is the way to keep current, and he loves to stay current. He loves to communicate with his customers, and he truly values their feedback. When they talk, he listens and he takes all of their pointers into consideration.


That is why many are saying that 2016 was the best year ever for Talk Fusion and for Bob Reina. After all, they did win two awards, which meant a lot to them. Again, as pointed out, this is the people’s company and they are not doing this to get a pat on the back or to get extra attention or praise. That would be the wrong reason. These are not selfish people and Bob Reina would not allow that. These are people that truly care and they care about the customers, each and every single one of them. That is not just some company line. That is the truth.


Bob Reina does not know how to lie nor does he want to lie. That is not in his nature and it is not in his being. That is why he is putting his money where his mouth is and he is offering 30-day free trials to new customers of Talk Fusion. This way, everyone gets a crack at it and everyone gets to see all of the perks that come with it like video chat and video emails. They have a lot more, of course, but they are always expanding and always looking to improve.


They have big goals, huge goals, as a matter of fact, and they will not rest until they are accomplished and they are completed to the fullest. They will not settle for second place because they have first class customers that have put their heart into Talk Fusion just like Bob Reina and his employees.
