79 - Unique Ways to Work Smarter Not Harder (with Arne Giske)

79 - Unique Ways to Work Smarter Not Harder (with Arne Giske)

The secret to making every weekend, a three-day weekend. is learning to work smarter, not harder.

You’ve heard this expression before and we've been talking about four-day workweeks and three-day weekends all month long.  So instead of seeking out entrepreneurs who are living the four-day workweek lifestyle, I decided to poll a few of my online communities, one of which I’m very active in, managed by Jill and Josh Stanton called Screw the 9 to 5 to see what they had to say about working smarter not harder.

35 - Getting Messy with "The Personal Panel" (Q&A with Crystal Cavey, Clem Harrod & Nazach Snapp)

The “Personal Panel” takes the concept of home productivity to a whole new level of practical wisdom and actionable advice!

My favorite time of the month on The Make it Snappy Productivity Show is when we bring in our panel of experts to answer our listener’s questions about the productivity topic-of-the-month, and it’s been a month filled with “home routine” goodies!

33 - Home Routine Coaching (with Kirsty Gutierrez)

33 - Home Routine Coaching (with Kirsty Gutierrez)

I got outside my comfort zone on this one...and helped with some very unique "home-routine" coaching with Kirsty Gutierrez.

Kirsty was interested in setting small, tangible goals for improving her home routine, which we outlined in detail via our conversation.  She enjoys spending time with her husband and her son, and LEAST enjoys doing LAUNDRY...I’m sure there’s NO other Snappy listeners who can relate!

Please check out our latest episode of The Make it Snappy Productivity Show with Kirsty Gutierrez.

31 - Fascinating Ways to Crush Your Home Routine (with Jeff“Hectic Dad” Page)

You think you're routine at home is tough? Try it with eight kids!

It’s such an honor to have Mr. Hectic-Dad, Jeff Page on the Make it Snappy Productivity Show.

I’ve always been fascinated by all the innovative ways Jeff’s kept it together with eight, yes EIGHT, children at home (they make reality TV shows about families this size, you know)...

I learned so much from Jeff, from making the best use of your time during car rides, to sports and after-school activities, to putting together a family-rule book!  I know you'll learn a ton about home productivity from the Hectic Dad.

Lean/Six Sigma projects are only for engineer nerds, right? Wrong!

When Michelle Aikman was a stay-at-home Mom, she used Six Sigma to make her meal planning, prep and execution process more efficient.  It’s a super-interesting discussion completely aligned with this month’s “home-routine” theme!

Who better to follow our last episode with Meal Prepping expert Chef Allison Schaaf than a guest who’s done a Lean/Six Sigma project on meal prepping!

This week on The Make it Snappy Productivity Show it’s all about figuring out the most efficient ways to prep meals at home and create more time for parents day-in and day-out.

Can you transfer productive work habits to home life?  

If you're spending weekend afternoons glued to the TV, playing around on the Internet, or randomly running around town picking up unplanned things for the house, you have an opportunity to develop a home routine using your finely-tuned work skills.

So what can be done to apply those same productivity skills that you’ve grown so adept at implementing during the workweek to our home routines, so we can spend our time more EFFECTIVELY on the weekends?

I’m excited to share three ways to leverage work productivity at home.
