What are your goals for 2022? What does success look like for you, not just in your work, but in your life?
In this article we will explore how you can outsource at home to make space for you to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
Your goals – big and small
For most of us, success is about much more than a number on your payslip, or even the balance in your bank account.
Most of us have a multitude of goals in our lives. Some are more achievable than others. We might have a five year plan for career progression, or a longer term goal to start our own business. We might be training to run a marathon in the next 12 months, or finish a novel.
Many of us have small, every day goals which we try, and often fail, to achieve. Whether it’s closing our “move” rings on our smart watches, practising that meditation we’ve committed to, or getting enough sleep, few of us are “winning” at everything. The juggle of work, family or caring responsibilities, and running the home, mean we don’t quite manage to do it all. And that’s hardly surprising. We are not super-human.
So what is the solution? Should we accept that we cannot have it all, and some of our goals will fall by the wayside? Or should we give up on our goals altogether?
Perhaps the starting point is to decide how we define success, as individuals. It is easy to get caught up in comparison with friends, or colleagues, who appear to be succeeding with a new car, or a gruelling fitness regime. However, their definition of success might be very different to yours. So what does success look like to you?
It might be:
- Getting to the gym 3 times a week
- Being there to read a bedtime story to your children
- Having a clean, calm space to come home to
- Having meals planned out for the week
- Having time for lunch with friends twice a month
- Enjoying a bubble bath in peace
Buy time with outsourcing
Many of our goals are actually about having time, not about money. So, one solution is to use your income to buy yourself time, by outsourcing.
In business, outsourcing is an accepted, smart way to grow. It makes sense to pay someone else to do day to day tasks such as book-keeping, or admin, to buy time to spend on more strategic priorities.
But we can also outsource at home to help us to achieve our success goals in our personal lives too. By outsourcing some of those day to day tasks, it is possible to buy time for the important things that help us to feel as though we are succeeding.
Here is a list of tasks that can easily be outsourced:
- Ordering and putting away groceries
- Dropping off and picking up dry cleaning
- Booking appointments and reservations
- Preparing for guests
- Meal preparation
- Pet care
Here at Just Helpers Liberty, we can do all of these tasks and more. We offer a bespoke housekeeping service to suit you.
Which daily tasks could you outsource at home? Buy yourself the time you need for your goals, whatever they may be – and leave the rest to us.
