Happy February to everyone out there! Hope your month is off to a great start, and hope those new year’s resolutions are still in tact and going strong. You may have found that the new schedules and routines are a bit difficult to keep up with, and we’re here to tell you… IT’S OKAY! None of us are perfect and we’re all trying to make our little space in the world better in some way.
Get off to a great start by cleaning up your to-do list
One easy thing to mark off your to-do list this month is housework. Leave it to someone who enjoys the work and will be much more diligent than you are about the nitty gritty. And that’s not even just shameless self promotion (you can book your appointment by clicking here). Okay, so it’s a little bit of self promotion, but stick with us here. It’s okay to need help to get it all done!
And we’re not just talking about housework. Maybe you have that in the bag, no problem at all. Maybe it’s meal prep, or yard work in the summer, or a number of other things that keep us busy. It is OKAY (and beneficial) to outsource some of those things. Whatever you do NOT like to do, there’s someone out there that finds that task enjoyable. Whether that’s scrubbing the bathtub, pulling weeds, organizing files, or replying to emails, there are people out there that excel at what you need help with.
Time management for success
So keep that in mind, that sometimes, it’s more helpful to offset a task and hire it done. It gives you the time to create or work in a way that best fills YOUR time. Money tight? Consider a trade. You know someone who cuts hair, or sews clothes, or makes cute Etsy crafts. Trade your services for theirs. When you can find a way to do MORE of what you love and help others to do more of what they love, your circle of influence is going to be that much happier.
So, whether you’re off to a great start, or still writing 2016 on your checks, we want to encourage you to sit down and look at your options. What do you absolutely HATE to do around the house? What do you LOVE to do? And what are some fun, clever ways you’ve come up with to do less of the former and more of the latter?
Sound off!! Let us know on Facebook how you offset tasks for better time management!
