Okay this might not work for everyone but I want to tell you what I did recently that brought a big improvement to my energy level and my outlook. Like all of you, many days I feel like I am pulled in so many different directions. I want to do it all, be it all AND I want to have a clean house while I do it. I’ve dreamed about hiring someone to clean my house for years but always have a million excuses for why it won’t work (cost being at the top of the list). Many of the motivational and business books I’ve been reading lately talk about the importance of delegating and paying others to do tasks that you are not that good at (or that you don’t enjoy). I thought … you know, I don’t buy Starbucks everyday anymore and I pack my own lunch. Hmmm, maybe I can afford this investment in my self. So last week, I took the plunge, hired a wonderful woman and I came home on Friday to a clean house. Such an amazing way to start the weekend! My time was free to enjoy the days and to create some new Teachers Pay Teachers products, which just made me so happy.
