What’s making me happier? 7 Power Hour

Happy August!

It’s my birthday month 🙂

I also can’t believe winter’s nearly over 🙁 As you know, I love winter

Last Monday night I posted a pic on Instagram of a few things I intended to do during my Power Hour.

I got my tax documents together at home, one was on my work laptop and one I emailed the company about there and then.

The company in question sent me my tax certificate mid-morning on Tuesday, I was out of a meeting after lunch, compiled all the things and emailed them off to my Tax Guy.

He did the calcs, sent to me to review, and after I paid him, he submitted it to SARS.

All on Tuesday.

My refund was in my bank account on Thursday morning.

Happy days!

Getting money is always a source of happiness but the real thing that made me happy was the efficiency of people who are expert and get things done.

It is well worth the money to me yearly to pay him to do my tax. Yes, I could do it myself and in fact, I used to, but because it was a once a year thing, I’d have to figure out the system again and all that learning is not necessary when he works with this stuff daily.

One email and a proof of payment later, and it’s done. Literally minutes on my side.

So, if you’re South African and you need a tax guy, I can recommend him because this is year 4 I’ve used him – contact me in the comments. I also have an ex-coaching client who does tax who I can also recommend.

But otherwise, think about something you battle with that someone else can quite easily do because it’s their area of expertise. Now book that person.

Where do you need help in your life?

(I booked a handyman for our old house – best money spent. His team whizzed around the house fixing all the bits and pieces, and things that were intimidating to us were taken care of.)

Do you follow Organising Queen on Instagram? I’ll post some goals review photos during this week.
