How Valuable Your Services Are...

Read this article in its entirety, but this is the message:

“People who spent money to buy themselves time, such as by outsourcing disliked tasks, reported greater overall life satisfaction,” said Ashley Whillans, an assistant professor at the Harvard Business School and lead author of the study, which was based on a series of surveys from several countries. Researchers did not see the same effect when people used money for material goods.

The late Jim Roden, the founder of Prochem, told me this in 1980:

"All a consumer is doing when they hire a cleaner is buying back their personal time. If you look at it that way, what cleaners do is priceless."

Jim Roden was way ahead of his time. That man was the most influential man in my life, other than my father. I still miss him.

My son wants me to teach his three year old how to do a Maori war dance before peeing off the back deck.

Challenge accepted.

I love Jim Pemberton, the man has tremendous wisdom and industry experience.

But this qualifies as a "gem" ?

Seriously?


You morons didn't figure this out by the first job you were on?

Next thing you idiots will be professing is that money can't buy happiness
