Are You Choosing Chores?

May. 1, 2017 | Posted by The Alternative Board Worldwide

Think about the time you wish you had to spend time with your kids (or your spouse, or even yourself). Do you wish you could attend their events, play with them and enjoy time doing fun things?

Many of us are busy enough at work as it is. If we are also doing work on our home—painting, mowing or other chores which could be done by others—you are spending time away from doing things you wish you could do with loved ones.

What is that time worth? It’s likely more valuable than what your own hourly rate is. Ask yourself if it makes more sense or is justifiable to pay someone else to perform chores so that you can do the family things you want. If it makes sense to outsource these tasks, do so without guilt. Remember, we won’t be on our deathbed wishing we had mowed the lawn more often!
