Being a spur of the moment person, I like to have things done so I can continue to take a day off to go to DC or the Craft Show or out to lunch or dinner with little notice. I am also flexible to show my properties, answer my phone, email and text.
It takes some planning to be spur of the moment.
This is being written for the October challenge.
'If you have your time (personal and business) under control now let us know how you did it. Tell us how you discovered the things that were most important to you and incorporated them into your life's activities. You can also tell us about what you discarded. '
My husband did all the checking, accounting, opening the mail, making deposits, paying the bills, keeping the records, staying in touch with the accountant etc.
Why not? He was a Wharton School graduate. That stuff was something I had no desire to do. No interest in finances and investments.
Well all that stopped, the mail was piling up, a few bills were late and a few things expired.
In our 47 year marriage, we never had a late payment.
Worrying was not helping. Trying to keep up with everything, while running my business, was overwhelming.
It all had to be done but it did not all have to be done by me!
So I stopped trying to keep up with the snail mail, the bills, the subscriptions, the accounts and did what any Type E person would do.
I hired a bookkeeper and let her open the mail, write the checks, pay the bills and get the stuff ready for taxes.
That's how I got my personal and business under control and continue to be spur of the moment.
