Taz: [00:00:00] Hey team! On today's weekly reminder I want to talk to you guys about convenience. Now I'm the type of person where convenience actually rules my life to some extent. I think it's got a major impact on a lot of people's lives without them even knowing, but I am a creature of convenience. I will always go to something that is easy and frictionless.
And today I want to talk to you guys about some things that I do to make my life easier, and it helps me get a lot done.
And at the end of the weekly reminder, I want to challenge you guys to comment below and let me know one area of your life that you can make more convenient for yourself.
So let's get into it. We all know what convenience is. It's making things simple, easy, and just having no difficulty doing a task.
Something that really grinds my gears is watching people not know their password and like fumbling around for literally like five minutes trying to work out how to log into something. It drives [00:01:00] me insane guys, get a password manager. And that doesn't mean putting it in your notes in your phone that can get hacked. People can view that.
Especially if you catch public transport and someone is sitting behind you and you're, you've got all your passwords on display, don't do that to yourself. Invest in a password manager, you will thank me later.
The password manager I use is called 1 password and basically everything I log into it stores my passwords in there. And then as soon as I'm on the website, whenever I'm on my computer, it automatically knows my username and password, and it's easy to log in. I even still things like my credit card details in there and just like important notes as well. And it just makes my life so much more convenient when I'm trying to log into something.
Okay, I've got another practical tip for you and this one's related to food. So there's two ways. I want to approach this one, one meal prepping, which I know a lot of you guys do already, but this is honestly a game changer for me whenever I prep my meals, which means just cutting up [00:02:00] everything, getting all the ingredients ready so that when you stop cooking, it's so easy.
You're basically just chucking things into a pot and that's all you need to do. Oh, I absolutely love that. And I actually really enjoy meal prepping on a Sunday when I've got some time on my hands and I can just pop some YouTube on in the background or some music and a podcast. And just listen to that while I'm cutting up some
veggies and fruit.
It usually does take a few hours, but it's worth it because when I'm going through the week and I'm busy, I can get the meals done in like half the time. And you'll probably notice this a lot with a lot of things, convenience related. It will take you a little bit more time at the start.
But it's so worth it guys, like, honestly, take an extra couple of minutes or hours to save yourself so much pain and suffering in the long run.
Now, for the meal prepping Queens, go for it. You're amazing keep doing that. But today's one of those days where I'm in a flow of work, I've got a lot to do by a deadline. Alessia is busy as well, so, [00:03:00] cooking a meal doesn't really make sense right now, but I am hungry and I need to eat. So I've used just Uber eats to order myself some lunch. And you kind of got to look at it in a productivity sense. Like I could spend an hour or even half an hour cooking something in the kitchen.
But then I'm going to lose my flow and it's going to take me like an hour to get back into working again. I would rather just continue working. And when the food shows up, I just go down, eat, take my quick break and then get back into it. So I feel like you can actually use ordering food as a convenience method as well, to help boost productivity.
But of course be smart about it. You can't just order food every day and be like, ah, I'm being productive. No meal prep and do the ordering food thing at the same time.
A little convenience thing I like to do for health and fitness is keeping my gym bag and a spare pair of runners in the car. Sometimes I spontaneously feel like working out. It could be like when I'm listening to music in the car and it's getting me pumped up. And I'm driving home and I'm like, Ooh, got some extra time on [00:04:00] my hands. I could go to the gym. Having the gym bag in the backseat of the car or in the boot really helps. And I have actually used it before where I thought. Got some extra time may as well go. So always keep a spare set of clothes or towels or shoes in your car just in case life pops up. And I know my mum does this for when she goes out. She always keeps a spare pair of heels in the car in case one of them break or if one of them's really painful and she's like, I can't deal with this anymore. I need it. I go to my car and get my other pair of heels. And I love having some towels in the car too, because you never know when you're going to need it. I was just at the beach the other day, going for a run. And then we decided to just jump in the water. So luckily I had a towel in the car.
Honestly, I could go on and on about different ways on how you can use convenience to help make your life easier, but you guys get it, you know, the drill. What I'm challenging you to do now is find an area of your life that you actually want to make a little bit more seamless and then think about something you can do to make [00:05:00] life a little easier.
Let me know in the comments, how you're going to make your life more convenient. I'm excited for you and I'll speak to you next week.
Today, we're diving headfirst into the wonderful world of convenience.
Now, I'll admit, I'm all about convenience.
It's like my guiding star in life.
And I have a feeling it plays a major role in many of your lives too, whether you realise it or not.
So, let's explore some crafty ways to make our lives easier, shall we?
First things first, let's talk about passwords. Raise your hand if you've witnessed someone desperately trying to recall their password for what feels like an eternity.
Please, spare yourself the agony of forgotten passwords and never resort to saving them in your phone's notes again. Invest in a secure password manager like "1Password." Trust me, it's a lifesaver.
With all your passwords stored safely, logging in takes two seconds.
You can even stash your credit card details and other important notes in there too - Convenience at its finest!
Now, let's shift our focus to food. I've got a couple of tasty tips for you.
First up, meal prepping. It's a game-changer, my friends. Picture this: you spend a bit of time on a lazy Sunday cutting up veggies and fruit while jamming to your favourite tunes or catching up on YouTube.
It takes a few hours, sure, but oh boy, does it pay off during the week. When you're swamped with work and racing against the clock, those pre-prepared meals make cooking a breeze.
But sometimes, meal prepping only gets us so far and we need a quick fix when we are knee deep in work and don’t want to interrupt our flow.
When I’m in this spot, I use food delivery services like UberEats to my advantage! It's all about balance, of course. You can't rely on it every day, but for those hectic times, it can be a game-changer.
Of course, we have to talk about health, since this area of life often gets put on the back-burner for a lot of people.
I’m not gonna yell at you for not going to the gym every day, but I will yell if you tell me you don’t keep your gym bag in the car!! It is simply a must.
The same goes for those emergency situations when your heels are causing distress. A spare pair of shoes in the car can save the day, just ask my mum!
And don't forget about having towels handy. You never know when an impromptu beach session might call your name!
You gotta be ready for anything!
We've barely scratched the surface, but I hope these tips have sparked some inspiration for you!
Now, it's your turn.
I challenge you to find an area of your life that could use a touch of seamless convenience. Think about what you can do to make it easier, smoother, and more enjoyable.
