This morning as I was putting my newsletter together I had time to enlist the help of my loving partner. On my request he carefully read over some of the material I wrote, helping me with a few corrections I needed to make.
In turn, I helped to tidy up some of his recent paperwork. This nice exchange of ‘Proofreading’ for ‘Bookkeeping’ helps us a lot, not only to get things done, it also allows us more time to chat and be together.
The thought I want to leave you with now is...
We all have things we are good at, and tasks that we enjoy. As well, there are things we don’t know how to do, or just plain don’t like doing.
Sometimes we have no choice but to do these things, as they are needed, yet other times we may be able to make a tradeoff with a friend, family member or co-worker.
Talk to those around you and see if you can engage in a mutually beneficial arrangement to make both of your lives easier.
