[00:00:00] Do you ever find yourself facing mundane tasks that make you want to pull your hair out? Yeah, me too. Just the other day, I had a fridge fiasco at my investment property. It decided to fizzle out on me, leaving me with a headache of finding a replacement, ASAP. . Luckily I had a spare fridge at home, but the logistics of getting it to the right place seemed daunting.
I pondered the options considering the time, effort and environmental impact of hiring a truck, driving hundreds of kilometers and roping in someone to help at both ends. But then a stroke of genius struck me like lightning. I turned to the magic of technology and joined Airtasker.
Within minutes I had someone lined up to deliver and install the fridge in just two hours. Problem solved! But that’s not all. I also realized I needed to dispose of the old fridge. Instead of trashing it, I offered it to the Airtasker guy who saw potential in it. They could either sell it, or fix it up for someone else. [00:01:00] It was a win-win situation, and I felt like a true delegation queen.
This little adventure taught me an invaluable lesson. What we may consider as crappy tasks, are often cherished by others. Just like the dread for writing all the text on my website. There are people that genuinely enjoy tackling those challenges.
Even the Airtasker delivery guy shared the love he had for his job. And I asked him, why do you like it so much? He said, he gets to meet new people, get a workout and skip the gym membership fees. Now that is smart. So my friend, what is on your crappy list? Is it the overwhelming workload, the time consuming administrative tasks, or you’re still doing your old job with all the leadership tasks on top.
