If you ever feel like your life is a bit chaotic or unstructured, it’s most likely because you haven’t given enough thought to the various systems in your life – how you go about handling the different things in your life – and you haven’t streamlined those systems as possible.
What are the systems? Basically, anything that happens regularly in your life — errands, laundry, email, kids lunches, etc. And systems can be either simple or complicated — depending on whether you’ve given them some thought and streamlined them.
Every single task in life needs time and effort and sometimes resources. You and your regular work is the very axis around which everything revolves and if so, shouldn’t it be streamlined?Let’s take a look at an example.
You are a BPO executive. You have planned an outing together with friends. You have a fixed plan with dates. You have booked your tickets. You have done shopping 2 days before to make sure everything is in time and there is no last moment rush. You are fully relaxed and looking forward merrily to your amazing trip to your favorite dream destination.
Just a day before, you walk over to the manager’s desk, smile, and ask about your pre-planned leaves. You hear him say, “We are sorry! Your leaves could not be approved.”Let’s take a look at another real-life situation.
Your kids are growing up and will soon be appearing for high school examinations. Your regular job gets you a meager salary. You cannot afford to pay for their extra tuition, so you decide to teach them at home for extra hours. You are a night worker and your kids have morning school. You come back home in the mid of the night when kids are already fast asleep.
When they return from school, you are away at work. It impacts their studies, education and it causes stress to you, your family including kids.
But soon you want to forget it because you cannot help it.Does it sound familiar?
I’m sure you could come up with more. In both the above situations, your life could be easier if you had the freedom to streamline how you work. You could pause for a second and think what could be done about this right away, and take the very first step towards that today itself. Remember, life is yours and should be productive. Make it work for you, not your bosses. While I leave it to you to choose your own path.
To me, dropshipping has been the ultimate freedom. I encourage you to have a dream where you are able to streamline your life and live a boss-free, stress-free, richer, more satisfying, and more productive life.
