What Do You Do with Your Time If You Now Shop On-Line?
I enjoy retail therapy, that is, visiting stores to look at what’s available and what I might need from stores I visit. The challenge is that if you do not have time to browse in the stores you love, you may need a better way to find the items you need—and so you shop on-line.
It’s a great way to save yourself time and gas money. If there are regular staple items that you normally order and you don’t really need to go to the store to find them, you may be in the habit of ordering everything you can on-line.
The question I have for you today is this:
If you now shop for most things on-line,
what do you do with the time?
Add up all the time it took to travel to a store (and take in account the travel time—including when you were stuck in traffic), the browsing you did when you got there and then the return trip home. Chances are you are saving hours each week by using the shop-on-line method.
So now add up the hours and ask yourself if you put those hours into working on your highest priority projects that help you get the results you are working to achieve. Keep a tally of the time you save so that you are sure you are working those saved hours as productively as possible.
