Christmas is such a busy time of time. We couldn’t survive this time of year without our lists. This year we are hosting Christmas lunch for our extended family of 16 people. We have “To Do” list for gifts; groceries; food to bake/prepare; Christmas menu; odd jobs that need doing around the house; school books and supplies to purchase etc. We like to have everything perfect for the Christmas season, and then we can relax over the holidays. Life is extra busy as the teens are working most days in their casual jobs which means a lot of trips back and forth to the shopping centre. Time is in short supply.
A recent survey by Yellow Pages has highlighted that Australia is a nation of procrastinators with 53% of respondents admitting they put off jobs at home or at work. According to the survey, 69% of Australians are more likely to procrastinate at home than work, with household chores (67%), DIY (36%) and cleaning (35%) the jobs we avoid doing. With life being so hectic, especially at this time of year, it is no wonder that people put things off. If you are like us, you are madly working on reducing your list so that you can relax over the summer holidays.
I know we need to find an electrician to get some garden lighting repaired for our summer entertaining. We are also looking for a plumber to replace a faulty kitchen tap. Then there is the carpet that need cleaning, the windows that need washing, and a few other odd jobs around our home. With only a month of my long service leave left, I need to get moving on ticking these items off my list before I return to the day job.
So if you are like us and struggling with some “To Do” lists, don’t put off those tasks any longer. By downloading the free Yellow Pages App you can save time this festive season, and get organised in 2013.
