The book “The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich” by best-selling author Timothy Ferris educates busy people to offload or outsource their routine to someone else. Outsourcing daily, weekly and monthly routines, allows professionals to get back to what made them successful in the first place.
Offloading the Mundane in Favor of the Creative
Let’s face it, if we truly take a look at our day to day routine, we are quite sure we can find something that we do that has become rote and if you look hard enough, that rote routine was probably at one time something you had to learn and was probably hard. Human nature is a funny thing, once we learn something new we get comfortable and add that task to the many other things we do which in turns robs us of precious time.
Our goal in life is not learning new things to move us forward in our business, but to learn new things and once we mastered it teach it to someone else to do it for us so we can move on the more cerebral things like brainstorming new products or services to give us an edge over our competitors.
Tiny Steps Can Lead to Big Results
You are probably asking yourself if you could automate or outsource what are you doing will it free up your time to pursue and reach your goals faster? Let’s start small. For example, if you grocery shop weekly, change it to 2 weeks and free up a good 4 hours a month. Also look at what you buy often and start ordering through Amazon’s subscribe and save program and start receiving items on auto-ship. Not only that this will free up more time, you no longer pay sales tax on those items and receive 15% discount for ordering 5 or more items, a win win.
Outsource Your Business Travel Planning
If you have a personal assistant, make sure that you are utilizing that assistant to take as much of the mundane off your shoulders as possible. If you do not have an assistant, you may want to consider a virtual assistant to handle as much of your business travel itinerary as possible.
When you come to think of it, using corporate transportation limousine service, in and of itself, is also a great time saver, especially if you have a long commute from the airport or even your job. Yes, driving is mundane so let someone else do it.
