I recently heard a discussion about how busy people find time for everything on their plate. We all have the same amount of time in a day. Twenty-four hours. That’s it. It’s what you do with those 24 hours that can make you successful at what you do. That means deciding what is important and what has to wait. That means deciding what you (only you) can do and what things you can allow someone else to do. Some people hire a cleaning service for their home, some people hire a lawn service, and some people order their groceries. Some people even hire someone to pick up their dog’s droppings!
What have I decided to “hire out” to make my life easier? The vacuuming. We purchased a Neato vacuum about a year ago. We even named “him”. I’m telling you-coming home from volunteering at the school or from the grocery store to a freshly vacuumed house is amazing! I normally wouldn’t have time to vacuum every single day. But let’s face it, with 4 kids and a dog it needs it! It was a small investment, but well worth it for my peace of mind and for the sake of a clean house!
There are many times in our lives when we have to decide what is worth our investment for something that we might be able to do, we just don’t have time. And even though we don’t have time, it is still very important to us.
That’s where I come in. Editing and proofreading. It’s easy for me. I’m good at it. And while a lot of people can do it, they just don’t have time. But like my clean house, having a clean blog or a clean website is something we all desire. It invites people in and makes them want to come back.
Enjoy your very own twenty-four hours.
