Create a schedule and stick to it. Dedicate certain days to certain projects. Even though I work from home and make my own hours, I follow a strict schedule. Like I always say, working from home is not the same thing as taking a day off πŸ˜‰ 

30. What most excites you about life lately? 
Travel! I visited 11 countries last year, and this year I hope to keep exploring. There’s nothing more exhilarating than exploring new destinations and meeting new people along the way!
