As freelancers we like to keep busy.
In fact, if we’re not busy we start to feel nervous. After all, “empty” time is unbillable time.
Beyond that, sitting around and doing nothing is something we have always been told is bad.
Staring out of the window and daydreaming at school was bad.
Failing to keep your head down and looking busy as an employee was bad.
From an early age we have been conditioned to believe that during our work hours we should always keep busy. To do otherwise brands us as slackers.
