Hi – ready for a quick check-in? Life is running full out over here, how about with you? This week is a quick catch up.


Dear God, this puppy is going to kill me. She is lucky she is so cute. Between the 8 miles of walking every day, potty training, and her over the top farts I may not survive puppydom. Luckily Lucille seems to like being a big sister and she does a lot of the babysitting. The wrestling occasionally tumbles under my office desk and unplug my monitors. But then I get looks like this:


Expanding Sustainable Productivity

I have been reading about the value contribution has on women’s quality of life and the more I read, the more it seems like it is a lever that we can pull to reduce or prevent burnout. I am adding it to the Sustainable Productivity framework as a component of the Mental Well-being dimension. There will be an upcoming podcast about it explaining more. Check it out wherever you get your podcasts and subscribe so you never miss an episode. If you need help downloading podcasts, check out this link.

One Day Hour by Hour

Last week was a fun annual social media challenge. One Day Hour by Hour (ODHH) encourages us to post photos of our daily life on social media. It is a lot to post every hour all day long, but when I look back at a whole day or past years it is absolutely worth it. Sort of like when habit change is hard and then pays off. Two years ago for ODHH, I was at my dad’s house for the end of his radiation treatment and help him pack up before selling his house. Looking back at how I spent the day was memorable and bittersweet. If you didn’t participate this year, think about it for next year! You can check out a day in the Sustainable Sue life on Instagram at this link.

Until next time remember to create productive results in a way that you can sustain and that work for you.
