Playing at Taxes (Really!)?

Nothing is certain except death and taxes

Attributed to Benjamin Franklin

For those of us in the U.S. taxes seem to be a most “certain” thing…. Why not make them Playful? Or, at a minimum, ease the stress and find a way to “Play” when gathering all the tiny bits of information that go into the making of the sausage which is a tax return?

Rather than spending months juggling papers …… choose to tackle taxes like a playful game! (Note to self: Last year’s taxes due May 17, 2021).

Breaking tasks down helps us to see large tasks as more approachable and doable, and reduces our propensity to procrastinate or defer tasks, because we simply don’t know where to begin.

Check out Kat Boogaard’s 6 min read “What’s Microproductivity? The Small Habit That Will Lead You To Big Wins” for all the insights to setting yourself up to “Play at Taxes.”

And, maybe…. just maybe… at the end there’s a big ole cookie waiting just for you.
