I am equally appalled and intrigued by the phenomenon I’m going to tell you about.
My boss is a great boss. Every day she sets an agenda for me at work. Her meetings are swift and productive, her email inbox is empty, she is a model of efficiency.
But, turns out I’m not the only one she’s managing. Because on the weekend I spied her husband’s Facebook post:
While her hub wants to sleep in and stay in pyjamas and eat Cheezels on the couch, Jamila instead manages him into productivity.
Weekend KPIs include showering, dressing baby, going to post office, going furniture shopping, etc etc.
So I sat down with Jam. I confronted her about it. Here’s how it went down:

JR: *hysterical laughter*. Nothing is wrong with me! I genuinely do not see what is wrong with laying out a plan for the day. When you have a plan, then you make the most out of the time that you have available. What could possibly be wrong with that?
MB: OK but what about his plan?
