You have heard of the term "automating your business" right?
This phrase basically means that as a business owner, you should set up systems to handle certain repeatable tasks so that you have more time and resources to handle other higher priorities.
Of course, you want to be smart with the investment. The money you put in automation should generate more return of investment (tangible or intangible) in the future for both of you and your business.
Anyhow, the whole idea revolves around the goal of increasing your productivity and scaling your output units.
An obvious example is how the electronics companies or old factories in the past used an automated assembly line to create products rather than doing it by hand.
This saves countless man-hours and means in theory that you can produce a hundred times more of products to sell and scale up your business growth ten times faster.
Have you ever considered using the same concept in your personal life to double, triple or even quadruple your free time?
Here are 3 simple ways on how you can do so:
Tip #1 Shop Online
Shopping online and setting up standing orders is a great way to save time that you would otherwise spend commuting to shopping malls, finding items you want, waiting in queues, and carrying the heavy stuff back home.
At the very least, you should use this for your regular grocery purchases so that you can get a weekly shop delivered directly to your door every day without leaving home at all.
Many people spend an average of 45 minutes per day buying fresh food and groceries. This switch to online shopping can save you 3-5 hours a week!
You can also set up standing orders for gifts.
Want to make sure your spouse gets sent flowers every year on your anniversary? Automate online!

If you can't afford a cleaner, then consider hiring a robotic vacuum cleaner.
These little cute gadgets will move around your home all on their own making sure to reach every small patch of floor to vacuum up crumbs, dust, dirt and anything else that gets on your carpet or wooden floor.
