Home Reflections I allow others to help me.

I allow others to help me.

I release the need to try to do everything myself. Other people can do things just as well as I can, and I am relieved that they are ready and willing to help me out. Letting others help me brings with it a whole world of benefits, starting with giving me more time for myself!

At home, I let my children help with the household responsibilities. I start when they are just toddlers with small tasks that they can easily achieve.
 
As they grow, I teach them how to sort their own laundry and then take care of it themselves. I show them how to cook and clean and then assign tasks for them to do each week. I show them the importance of organization and let them help keep things organized.
 
As a result, they learn responsibility and each child feels that he is an integral and needed part of the family.
 
I allow my spouse to help me, too. In fact, we help each other however we can. Household work is always more fun and gets done in half the time when we do it together! Also, when I am feeling down, my spouse shores me up again.
 
At work, I let my co-workers help me. I delegate tasks to those most suited for it, knowing that they will do a great job. The whole team benefits when we share the work and responsibilities in this way.
 
When I am trying to solve a problem, I seek advice from those who may have been through the same dilemma. I let their wisdom and experience guide me in my decision.
 
Today, I give up the superman persona and welcome help from those who would give it.
 
Self-Reflection Questions:
 
1.    Do I tend to resist the help of others?
2.    How can I get my children involved in helping around the house?
3.    How can I delegate tasks more effectively at work?

This last task is the most difficult. Rather give me an electric circuit to design than to write an assay. It took me 7 days, a little bit a day. But here it go’s.  It feels so good to have started something, the Kaizen Challenge, and completed it. It is good Read more...

Has all the easy money been made in property?
 Has all the easy money been made in property? Log in to the new, relaunched Property School website and view the 6 part video series “Property Investment in Uncertain Times” at no cost.   It seems like by the time something hits the news, the good times are over. By the time everyone gets into it, the easy money’s been made, the big boys are entrenched, all that’s left are the crumbs.   Is this true of property too? Was all the easy money made a few... Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-08-28 Would You Try And Read An Entire Library? If you walked into a library, would you try and read every book? No, you’d go straight to the ones you are interested in. Perhaps you’d ask a librarian for advice. You’d narrow down the choice, and then take two or three out. There is a well-established system that can help you – the Dewey classification system – and a guide – a trained librarian. And that is why you can walk into a library... Read more...
