 Favorite Time hack:

Family (activities)- especially now in COVID times

Wednesday afternoon Brain Dump

  • Use google docs or just a piece of paper for 5 to 10 minutes, and write out absolutely everything that needs to get done and make a massive to-do list. No priorities, just write it out.
  • Then start prioritizing. Pick 5 things to accomplish in a week.

Benefit: clear out major brain fog, to uncloud your focus.


Getting your family all involved. 

  • Handle your own things”- Teach kids to become more independent
  •   Team-work and divide household chores. Set up a timer for 20 min for Clean up Sprints. Get as much as possible in 20 minutes. Award for the best job! Do before and after pictures. Make it fun



Work-life balance. Does it exist? Especially in the WFH environment, we are in. 

  • Be creative and take turns planning out dates and fun things, even at home. For example, plan a “Spa Evening”, or have a picnic in the backyard.
  • Money Dates – a creative way to talk about finances. Schedule these times. Weekly is Anna’s suggestion!


      Find the right tool for the job. So simple, but misunderstood a lot. What are those repetitive tasks, you can streamline, delegate, and eliminate?
