I helped a friend layout an irrigation system on his mother’s property. As we were arranging the pipework, he mentioned that our efforts would potentially save her one hour per day. That equates to a time saving of just over two weeks per annum or 5 months over the next ten years—not a bad return when you consider a 10-hour initial investment with a hard cost of $300.00.

When we reflect on our daily and weekly routines—whether at work or home—much of what we do is repetitious, and with a bit of forethought and planning, we can: free up time for more meaningful or pleasurable pursuits; create additional time capacities and overhead savings within our organisations and do a whole lot more with less.
