Are you a person who writes to-do lists?

Nate Mullen is -- and too often, he said, he found himself putting mostly work tasks on his list.

But there are so many other important things in life, beyond just your job.

What if you “scheduled your joy?” as podcast creator Zak Rosen put it.

Do you need to ... go for a run? Stretch after a long day? FaceTime your mom?

Make those items just as important as your work tasks. Put them on your list!

“Call your homie. You said you were going to call them!” said Mullen, an artist and educator from Detroit, with a laugh.

He’s one of the more recent guests on “The Best Advice Show,” and we think you’re going to want to hear more. Episodes are quick hits: Usually around 2 minutes apiece.

Rosen wants to hear from you next.

To contribute some of your advice, drop us a voicemail at 844-935-BEST. Leave your name and your tip, followed by your email address in case we have any follow-up questions.

We’re not so much interested in platitudes and truisms, but instead, we’re looking for the specific, odd, uplifting, effective, real advice from you about how you make it through your days.

“The Best Advice Show" is a product of Graham Media Group.
