Summary:Einführungskurs wie man die zur Verfügung stehenden 24 Stunden sinnvoll nutzen und das meiste daraus machen kann.
Als Freiberufler muss man sich um sehr viele unterschiedliche Aufgaben kümmern. Man bemüht sich um neue Projekte, arbeitet an vorhandenen Projekten, hält Abgabetermine ein und handhabt alle geschäftlichen Aufgaben, wie jeder andere Unternehmer.

Um das meiste in der gegebenen Zeit erledigen zu können, kann man Techniken nutzen und seine Fertigkeiten gezielt erweitern, um (a) die Arbeit schneller zu erledigen und/oder (b) mehr Zeit für sich selbst zu haben.
