The popular blog, Ask The Strategist, offers five tips for staying productive while snowed-in: Play first, then work; prioritize your day; give yourself a break; stay connected; and, establish a routine and stick with it.
“The weather, or more important, our perception about precipitation and its impact on our lives often causes us to become frustrated.
