So many designers I talk to have projects in all stages going on at all times. How many projects you can handle at one time is totally unique to you, but the problem comes in when you have a ton of open projects that you aren’t making progress on.
You never know when each client will come to you, magically ready for the next step. And because of that, you have no control over your schedule, projects, or process.
Before we get into this topic, know that if you are in this situation, you are NOT alone.
If your process isn’t set up to prevent this, it’s easy to let project after project remain open and unmoving.
