This was such a fun interview!
Dr Christine Koh is a self-described “music and brain scientist turned multimedia creative”, and I feel like this barely scratches the surface of all she does! In this episode, she shares her planning techniques and philosophies, from concrete actionable ideas (her family calendar concept is my favorite) to the broader concept of holding plans gently. She is a Todoist devotee but recently has been making a foray into paper (possibly influenced by me 🙂 ) and is just an all around thoughtful and creative person.
I headed into this weekend with much trepidation — no screens AND Josh on call!? It actually turned out to be a generally nice one and my kids are continuing to impress me with their ability to DO OTHER THINGS (which is turns out was a bit masked by screen availability).
A lot of time was spent outside (again). I survived a rather warm and humid 4 mile run. Then I took the kids to our community pool — G is getting closer to swimming – she can now go forward. She just needs to learn how to take breaths! I think she will be actually swimming by summer.
We spent the afternoon at the playground (met up with friends) and then I made dinner + we had the kids in bed by 8:10. Josh and I actually got to watch a show and noted that this hadn’t happened in literally months. He also had a less busy day today (yesterday he did an hours-long case) and did a ton of decluttering/cleanup which is basically my love language.
If you can’t tell . . . I’m feeling a lot better about life lately, for whatever reason. I still have some big things I am working through but March has honestly been a breath of fresh air.
Okay Total Strength with Andy Time . . . Week 3 #1, here we go.
