5 Productivity Hacks to Help You Juggle Multiple Projects

How to Use “The Immersive Approach” to Make Big Progress on a Project

I tried to schedule specific times to focus and get stuff on paper, but other things (work duties, social […]

My Experience with Chronic Illness

I’ll be honest, I’m having a really hard time writing this post. I’ve blogged about my experiences with chronic illness a little in the past, but I’ve been wanting to share more because I think it’s important. I know chronic illness is something many other multipods struggle with. As the “resident multipotentialite” here at Puttylike […]

As often happens here at Puttylike, some of our best conversations begin over in the Puttytribe. Recently, some puttypeep got into a great discussion about living with chronic illness as multipotentialites–what it looks like day-to-day, and how to navigate having less energy or capacity than you’d like, especially when you have so many interests you […]

On this imaginary spreadsheet, there are plausible fears – perhaps a worldwide coffee shortage would rate an […]

Feeling Exhausted and Unproductive? Here’s How Not to Feel Bad About Yourself

As a kid, I never understood why adults were so slow. Surely it would be more natural to run around and bounce and clamber – what was wrong with them? Why were all adults so lazy?! Now I’m (allegedly) an adult, I get it: We’re not lazy… we’re just exhausted. That seemingly infinite energy just […]
