Streamline Your Life

By Kam

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 efforts and sometimes resources. You and your regular work is the very axis around which everything revolves.

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 favourite dream destination. Just a day before, you walk over to 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 example.

Your kids are growing up and will soon be appearing for high school examinations. Your regular job gets you a meagre salary. You cannot afford to pay for their extra tuitions, 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 night when kids are already fast asleep. When they return from school, you are away at work. It impacts your 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 scenarios, your life could be easier if you had the freedom to choose the time and have money. You could pause for a second 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 yourself and add value to life. While I leave it to you to choose your own path. To me, dropshipping has been an ultimate resolution to my freedom and finance. I encourage you to have a dream where you are able to streamline your life and live a stress-free, richer, more satisfying and productive life. Remember, if you don’t have a dream and work to fulfil it, someone will soon hire you to fulfil theirs.
