Are You Needing Extra Help With Your Use Of Time?

Posted on: 25 July 2019

Are you wishing that there were more than twenty-four hours in a day? Between going to work and attending to your family obligations, maybe you are simply worn out. Maybe you are asking yourself something like, "When am I supposed to have any time for fun and relaxation?" If that's the case, maybe you have been thinking that you could use some help with your use of time. 

Do you have a plan in mind already? If not, from small things like arranging for dry cleaning delivery to paying extra attention to your priorities, here are some ideas that might help you.

Even Dry Cleaning Delivery Might Make A Difference - Think of the time and gasoline you spend on taking clothes to the dry cleaners to be professionally cleaned. Then there's the frustration of arriving to pick up clothes right after the cleaners have closed down for the day. Or, maybe you have put clothes in the trunk of the car when you were having other passengers along for the ride. How long were they in your trunk before you remembered to take them to the dry cleaners? 

There's a very simple and inexpensive solution to that problem. Arrange for dry cleaning delivery. The service will also pick up the clothes that need to be dry cleaned. You'll probably be given a cloth bag in which to put the garments that need to be cleaned. When they are ready to be delivered, you don't even need to be home to receive them. Just designate a place where you want them to be left, and that'll happen. Think of establishing a day for pick up and a day for the clothes to be delivered. The delivery day might even be the day after the clothes were picked up. There won't even be an extra charge.

Pay Attention To Your Priorities - Does your house really need to be cleaned every morning before you head out for the day? And, what about the extra business meetings you set up? Couldn't a lot of that business be done online or on the phone? 

Think of writing down the things that are most important to you. Put them at the top of the list. You'll probably find that by giving those your highest priority the other less important things will still be accomplished, even if it's in a different way. Try your new schedule for a week or two and make changes as they are needed.
