If Only I Have 36 Hours A Day

How many times have you wished that you have another 12 hours in your day? For the busy individuals and the busy business people, I am sure you have had uttered those words or something along that line. If you take a quick look at your work schedule for the past few years, you will realize that your office work has crept into your home and your home has started to be your office.

This phenomenon is not because of the way individuals work but rather because of business globalisation. Just as aeroplanes are capable of zipping us around the globe, similarly, technology enables office work to follow us around; e.g. email, blackberry and thin clients. Suddenly, you find that you are poor of time but rich in work. With long hours at work, we stand to lose quality and social life.

How often have you forgotten birthdays? How many times did you miss your child’s grand day?  Well, I have and I’m sure you have too or perhaps you have come very close to that.  If you are in this situation or hard pressed for time, the words concierge service and lifestyle management will become magical terms in your life.  When I first heard these words, I was like “What?”.

Well, I soon learned that these magical words are services that will enrich my life — where quality of life is once again part of me and my family. Believe it or not, there are companies or establishments providing services to make your life easier or rather I would say, to help you prioritize the important things in your life. Anything you need, absolutely anything at all, is serviced by these companies; from purchasing helicopter rides to booking golf tee-times through to pet-sitting.

These godsend companies relieve the hassles of my domestic chores, my business and personal life’s nitty-gritties in exchange for the priceless minutes and hours of my life.

    Concierge services have been around a long time, actually dating back to the 1800’s in France. They are starting to gain more popularity and are really helping people who have a huge to-do list, but no time to take care of it. I own and operate an errand and concierge service and find it amazing how many tasks one person can have for my business to complete. I can see the relief on my client’s face when they have time to do the things they want to do instead of the things that they have to do.
