Our free time is precious but do we really know how precious? Do we really know its worth? So many of us spread ourselves so thinly, trying to juggle our professional and personal lives - often wishing that there was something we could do to make it easier, or less stressful. We all value our free time - but how can we make the most if it? If only there was a free time liberation movement to join! ;)
Outsource the outsourceable
Many business books and gurus offer a very simple piece of advice: outsource the stuff that is easy to pass to somebody else (which they’re, possibly, better at too) and concentrate on the things that you’re good at/bring in the money. Or the things that give you satisfaction, if money isn’t the main motivator! How many of us actually do this? It’s pretty common to speak to a business owner, or professional person, and to hear how they’re spending way too much time on admin tasks and not enough time drumming up trade or selling their unique skill set. There’s an imbalance. Is a similar scenario playing out at home?
If you’re spending your precious Saturday mornings miserably scrubbing the bath, or resentfully scraping Wednesday night’s spaghetti off the hob, you might need to rethink your strategy. (Note: Obviously, if these domestic tasks spark your joy, this possibly isn’t the blog post for you!)
No more loo scrubbing
So many of us work hard all week and then feel dread at having to get the house into shape over the weekend, in order to start all over again. But what if you didn’t have to? What if you outsourced these tasks and hired a cleaner: a professional to knock our homes into shape because, well, that’s their skill set (and they’re so much better at it than us)?! Image the possibilities! A lovely clean house on a Friday night… No porcelain scrubbing of a Saturday morning… A shiny kitchen sink… It would be a dream come true, right? All that free time to enjoy doing the stuff you actually like doing.
Down with dusting!
But is this dream attainable? ABSOLUTELY! And, the best bit, it’s not going to break the bank. If you value your free time, hiring a cleaner for £14 per hour is a steal! Having a cleaner is a liberation from domestic drudgery and offers you a chance to take back your precious free time - without the need to write it on a placard, storm the streets in protest, chanting: ‘DOWN WITH DUSTING!
It all depends on what value YOU place on your precious free time. For us here at Time For You, it’s a no-brainer! It’s the premise behind our whole enterprise: we’re in the business of creating time for you so you can enjoy your life.
