Time is valuable. It’s the most valuable thing that we have. It comes and goes but we can’t get enough of it.
Busy as I am with work, sometimes I run out of time to do the things that I love to do such as spending time with family, watching movies, and blogging.
So, I just pondered one day to figure out how could I get more time to do what I loved. I started jotting down in my head the activities that I spend throughout my day(s) of “dead time”. My list of dead time was comprised of:
- Scrolling through social media (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, etc.)
- “Daisy Chain” YouTube sessions (where watching one video leads to watching another, to another, to another…)
And there were a few more that I thought of at the time that I can’t recall right now.
But the thing is I enjoy doing those things as well. Scrolling through social media I can keep up with friends and family that is not near. My “Daisy Chaining” YouTube sessions are majority educational self help sessions. And by daydreaming, that is when a lot of my ideas manifest from. So I did;t see any good reason to eliminate those activities to free up time.
I started thinking of other activities that I could eliminate to free up time. Cleaning was one of them.
Cleaning needs to be done, otherwise our home would be a pig sty. Both me and my wife spread the chores, but it’s not really the ideal quality time that we want. So I started thinking and weighing out the value of time we spent cleaning with the value of what we desired to do. Of course, without question, our quality time is more valuable.
So we decided to hire HOUSE CLEANERS! Woohoo!
