Recipe For A Productive New Year

Squeezing 44 hours of work into 4 days doesn’t afford loads of time to get much else accomplished during the week. Fridays are basically my only days to get anything done regarding building my business, planning our wedding, cleaning house, or running our 90 lb fur baby, all before the weekend arrives. Prioritizing the balance of it all is the key to my sanity, as is the motivation to push through as productively as possible with daydreams of weekend rides on the Harley with my the man of my dreams and dog beach dates with my sidekick Xephyr.
