Founders, this is for you.. Especially those flying solo.. How do you manage to consistently work on your project besides all the ups n downs. Or how do you get your work done, how efficiently do you reach deadlines?

I try to ship atleast one feature/bug fix /improvement daily no matter what. This really helps to build the momentum. After a while, it turns into a habit and it becomes part of daily routine πŸ˜„

I am usually working on smth that gets me excited no matter what. Also, there's nothing wrong on taking time off (even if it's a week/two weeks) - getting things done doesn't have to be everything in your life!

@gleb_braverman True, take time off whenever you feel it's necessary.

My issue is actually making time for other things but building, designing and shipping. I think if you're totally all in on the idea, it should come naturally. If not, I might suggest examining if you really believe in what you are doing.

This is a question that I am very familiar with. A lot of people had asked me about how I manage to consistently produce content and maintain my personal brand. They want to know how I find motivation and inspiration. Here is the truth; as a working mother with a demanding full-time job, I don't always have the energy, motivation, or inspiration. But my key to consistently producing content is through this system that I've created. I am not waiting for an inspiration to strike or creative energy to appear, I just sit at my desk and get to work. The system also allows me to set a clear boundary and work-life balance because I am not busy doing busy work, I am being productive and purposeful with what I am doing. Basically, I have goals, measurements and tasks. You can check out the system in full at The Creator System .

I think the key is creating something you're naturally drawn to and finding a way to fit it into your routines so that it becomes a habit. It's hard to be consistent otherwise (at least for me).
