Set Clear Goals and Timelines
Keep the big picture front and center, and set an everyday timeline that you will strictly follow
Prioritize Your Tasks
Make sure that you are focusing on the most important parts of your animation work and allow little but enough time for the unimportant parts
Anticipating change also means being ready to deal with sudden changes to avoid delays and other conflicts
Communicate your progress to your client because your client's feedback during the process will help you save time on revisions
Add a Rush Fee
Resh services make you work overtime (ex: sleepless nights). So you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't have an additional rush fee in place. It depends on many factors, but some freelancers charge 25%-50% more than the original price for rush services.
