I always forget to but when I feel out of sorts, things aren’t working or I’m getting overwhelmed, instead of trying to push through the never-ending to-do list (often created by myself), I am a big fan of the ‘ta-da!’ list.

If you’ve found your windows of ‘work’ time during quarantine shrinking based on your kids’ attention spans, this one’s for you. I’ve used time blocking over the years to improve my efficiency with work tasks and output, while lowering my stress levels and feeling more in control when the unexpected (always) occurs.
