DIY could be more efficient than you think!

When we talk about efficiency, many might think that paying someone to do something gives the better outcome (ie. cost effective, quicker and more effiicient). Especially when we are referring to paid services around the house by a local service provider. For example: locksmiths, removalists and  skip bin hire etc. But the truth of the matter is that this may not necessarily be the case.

How can this be you may ask? Quite simple really: modern technology. That’s correct; in this age where youtube and other video sites are popular and DIY videos from experts are constantly being uploaded, it is relatively easy to find a DIY video with a step by step instruction. Check the following video on how you can clean your house like a professional that was taken straight from youtube:

It’s not the only DIY video… there are many others out there. You just need to search for it! Go on… have some fun and search for stuff that you can do yourself around the house.

Intro to efficiency and why it is a big deal

When you talk about efficiency, many will think about speed – ie. how fast something is done. This is somewhat true, but I’d like to think it has to do a lot on the efficacy. For example, surely if things were done quickly but not effective.. what’s the use right? It’s hard to argue that one seek effectiveness as well as speed of task.

So it is fair to say that having the right balance between speed and accuracy (effectiveness) is the epitome of efficiency. The definition of having the right balance may differ for different individuals. That is important to realise.

As an intro post, I’d like to know what you (the reader) think about when the word efficiency is mentioned. What is the first thing that comes to your mind? Just comment below. It will be very interesting what people think about this topic.
