Timeboxing: TODO List 2.0!

I recently wrote about TODO lists and how they can help with focus now that many of us are working from home.

We had Chris Sippel return to us after finishing up his final portion of school. Chris is a bit quirky (and that's really why we love him) and started with us in the early days.
