This is Stanley, my daughter’s dog. I love spending time with him!
Sometimes, when Bailey (daughter) is working with clients or at her co-working space, I spend some time at her place with Stanley. We’ve finally figured out a great routine of playing and resting so I can get my fill of Stanley cuteness and still get a little work done when he decides it’s time for a nap. I get much more done with my cat Wilbur, but I’m glad I have a good cat/dog balance going on right now. I’m happy to have furry friends in my life.
Ok … onto the favorites.

This article (NYT) has encouraged me to experiment more with my work hours. Because my schedule is so flexible, I sometimes dip in and out of work and don’t know how much I’m actually working. I’m tracking my hours for the next few weeks and only working when I’m working (and not working when I’m not). I’ll have more to report on this experiment soon!
It was an honor to share my story and participate in this Happiness Lab podcast episode with Yale Professor, Dr. Laurie Santos about choice overload.
