    Oh, Tracy…it just doesn’t work…. you are very organized and doing a great job keeping it all in balance.

    Work smarter, not harder sounds good but unless you are a mess, it just doesn’t work. Also, my boss used to intone that all the time and it meant coming in a half hour earlier, working through lunch and leaving an hour late. Have fun instead and eliminate the unnecessary.

    • Tracy

      That’s why I’m trying not to be a mess 😉
      Your boss didn’t sound like a good leader!
      Thanks for the note xxoxooxxoxo

  • Lindsay

    For what it’s worth, I love your mantra, and have firsthand experience that it works ❤️ And who isn’t a mess, in some way or another?

    • Tracy

      Life is messy and requires maintenance 😉
      That’s why sometimes you need to have a cleaning service come in and clean your house!
      That’s an idea to work smarter, not harder.
      If only I could afford a cleaning service more than once a month!
      Every little bit helps.
