Time is so limited in todays world, it seems that we never have enough of it. Our lives are so “on demand” that we can hardly find time for the more important things like family. To give us all a little more time, we’ve come up with five ways to take back control of the clock.
Tip 1: online grocery shopping
The dreaded supermarket stop-off on the way home from work every night because you’ve forgotten a crucial ingredient for tonight’s dinner.
Why not outsource your grocery shopping to someone that wants to do it? Coles, Woollies and other supermarkets are happy to do all of your grocery shopping for you and deliver it to your door at a time that suits you. They will even take care of the delivery costs if you spend over 100 bucks. It forces you to plan the weeks’ meals too, which in the end is a big time saver.
tip 2: air Tasker - outsource your chores
This is one of Nick’s favourite outsourcing Apps. When writing this blog, I sat down with Nick and asked “what type of tasks do you use Air Tasker for?” he replied “moving a table”. So, after doing my research, I found that Air Tasker was used for a lot more than just moving tables. You can use it to do all sorts of things like gardening, dog walking, cleaning the gutters, eBay and Gumtree deliveries and even handyman work.
The best thing about this is that you don’t have to buy the tools or read the instructions, someone just comes around to complete a task at a time that suits you. And yes, you can claim responsibility for all your home improvements.
tip 3: get a driver
At Evolve IT we use Uber to attend meetings in the city.
There are a couple of reasons we do this:
1 – Parking is a nightmare in Melbourne CBD
2 – Our team can work in the Uber on the way to the meeting.
3 – Our team doesn’t get stressed out from being stuck in traffic.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t cost us much more in expenses, the guys can work in the Uber and we save money on parking, tolls and fuel.
tip 4: where is my lunch?
Getting a healthy meal delivered to your door is a thing now. Uber Eats, Deliverroo etc deliver food to your door, and all you have to do is place the order. Evolve IT HQ is in an area that these delivery servicers are unavailable at the moment. However, I am positive it’ll be a hit when it arrives.
tip 5: fix my technology
Partnering with an IT company can be the biggest time saver of them all. They can take care of fixing IT issues as well as tech budgeting and assisting with strategic direction. At Evolve IT we help businesses at small, medium and enterprise levels with all of the above. Outsourcing your IT services requires trust but can be an excellent time saver if you have the right Company.
Hopefully, now that I have given you all of these tips on saving time you will now have enough time to do the things that you are passionate about.
