Getting out of the Third Quadrant

image I posted this picture a week or so ago, and I’ve been thinking about it since.  How much of your week is taken up by tasks that just have to get done?  If you’re like everyone else, it’s a lot!  With just a little planning, you can change this.  You will be amazed at how much time you have to spend on things you want.  Here are some ideas about how you can spend less time with these pesky tasks.

  •  Mow the lawn.  – Hire the neighbor kid.
  • Shovel snow. -Hire same neighbor kid.
  • Take kids to school.  – Carpool.
  •  Grocery shopping. – Have a plan and a list to reduce time at the store.  Go the same day each week.
  •  Buy supplies and sundries at Target or Walmart. – Join Amazon Prime. Buy your stuff with free shipping.
  • Buy birthday presents for kids’ parties.  Again, Amazon Prime.  Or purchase some gift cards from Dick’s or Academy Sports in advance.  Keep them in a file, ready to go for the next time a gift is needed.
  •  Make supper. – Use a crock pot at least once a week.
  • Change oil in car. – Switch to a high quality synthetic, and change oil every 20,000 miles (Amsoil is the best in my opinion.).
  • Small repairs around the house. -Put a full list together, and hire a handy man for a full day.  You’ll be amazed how much he will get done.
  • Dry cleaning errands. – You know the answer to this one:  The Green Van Dry Cleaning!  Pick-up and delivery right at your door each week.

I truly am committed to changing the way Johnson County spends their time.  Get out of the Third Quadrant Quicksand.  There is just no reason for you to spend your life running from errand to errand.  Start with dry cleaning.  But don’t end there!
