    Top 100 Ideas For 2022 - Or ARE They?

    Top 100 Ideas For 2022 - Or ARE They?

    MJ came across an article in The Guardian that suggests "100 ways to slightly improve your life without really trying", and Layla K and MJ have thoughts! But first we took an online poll to find out, is it just me? Here's what we polled:
    Poll #1: To better your life with little effort, which would you do:
    Take a walk without your phone Send a voice note instead of a text Sleep with your phone in the other room Don’t have Twitter on your phone Poll #2: To try something different this year:
    Be polite to a rude stranger Don’t get weirded out by stacking the dishwasher differently Call an old friend out of the blue Don’t save your “best”, just use it! Poll #3: The least good (or worst best) idea to try in 2022:
    Skinny dip with friends Learn the names of 10 trees Bring fruit to work / Bring fruit to bed Wear yellow, because it’s cheery Did we miss something? Still have thoughts? Let us know on our Instagram or Twitter!

    #LaylaKandMJ brought in an expert to help us understand the situation. Mr. Ian Moore has spent over 20 years in the logistics, procurement, and supply chain space, and brings much needed perspective to the supply chain crisis. Or is it one?
