9 ways professional photographers can increase productivity & earn more

One recent study found that small business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs waste as much as 21.8 hours a week on unproductive activities.

How much time do you think you and your fellow professional photographers waste?

You got into photography because you’re passionate about it. But running a successful photography business requires a lot more than framing the perfect shot. Being productive is not as easy as it sounds, because there are often distractions tearing your attention away from your work.

No matter which systems and habits you implement to increase your productivity, it all comes down to your ability to fight the temptation of distraction.

In his book on finishing creative work, The War of Art, Steven Pressfield names the enemy of productivity — Resistance. “Its aim,” according to Pressfield, “is to shove us away, distract us, prevent us from doing our work.”

These nine tips can help you build healthy working habits and be more productive.
