Do you ever have those nagging things that you should do but you just don’t make the time? I’m talking about simple things that might take a moment longer than you’d like but in the end will actually save you time and/or money? Yeah. Me too. And today I’m thinking about 3 of them in particular.
- Fixing the receipt printer at work. Right now it doesn’t advance the paper as much as it should when printing a receipt and that means we have to hit the button to advance it by hand. Normally this isn’t a big deal but these days we need those receipts to be long enough to go into the books and not fall out. Have we made the time to figure out how to program the printer to automatically make the receipts longer? Nope. Because it’s a pain in the ass. But would it save us time if we just spent the time making it right? You bet it would.
- Installing my new Quip toothbrush head and battery. Are you familiar with Quip? It’s a great electric toothbrush and a great price and they automatically send you a new head and battery every 3 months. My latest refill came about 3 weeks ago. It literally takes less than 2 minutes to take out the old brush head, clean it up, install a new battery, and attach the new brush head. Have I done it? Nope.
- Cleaning my make up brushes. I have an awesome cleaner that I buy from Senegence, it even works to remove built up foundation on my foundation brush. And it takes minutes to clean my brushes and I know I should do this once/week. My make up goes on easier and looks better when I just take a few moments to clean the brushes. But do I? Nope.
Hopefully writing this post will inspire me to get these things (and others that I’m sure I’m ignoring) done!
