You SUCK at cutting grass, so why are you doing it?
A little harsh? Maybe, but for the life of me I can’t figure out why people keep on trying to do everything themselves?
Last week I had and epiheny and I posted it to my Facebook Page.
…and as usual we had the few people who didn’t get it, here’s what they had to say and my replies.
It’s not about money it’s about balance? Give me a break, if you have enough money to get things done while improving your lifestyle then you’ll have TRUE balance.
Balance to me is being able to make the choices that make you happiest.
That’s really nice…if you have the money? Let’s break this down by the numbers.
- Cutting Grass, Trimming Hedges, and cleaning up
6 hours (for me to do it)
- Cleaning the house
Total: 12 hours of my time
I’ve just added an extra day and a half to my week, what would you do if you had an extra day of work or play? Here’s what I did.
I used 5 hours for prospecting which led to 3 new prospects and an appointment with one of them (which could be a really good deal.)
I took the additional 7 hours and used them for a “Date Day” with my wife. We went out to lunch, hung out, and just had fun.
