Lately I've been thinking about how I manage my work. I'm curious how other designers and self-employed folks tackle it, but haven't found any detailed conversations along these lines. Since so many of us work in isolation, maybe it's helpful to share our approaches and how they've evolved over the years. Some of you in larger corporate and agency settings may also find it just as interesting. So I'll go first. Here's a fairly detailed description of how I manage my workload, with a few recommendations at the end.
