Every morning I start my day by getting breakfast started while my kids brush their teeth. Once they are settled and satiated, I sit down to start my work day. Because I work from home, it is vital for me to pre-plan my day to best maximize my efficiency and avoid burnout. The biggest part of that plan always seems to be “stay flexible.” Sometimes I even write on my to-do list as a reminder to myself throughout the day. Between two kids and a new business, there are a lot of fires to be put out, issues vying for my attention, and constant interruptions (the greatest understatement).

Even if I did have time, like in a fantasy world where I could have 30 minutes of uninterrupted time in the bathroom, I still wouldn’t choose to follow a routine with too many steps or products. I just don’t think it’s necessary.
