Although you may be highly resistant to the idea of being completely replaced by a robot there are a number of daily tasks that could actually be made quicker and easier if you are prepared to embrace the power of tech and automation.
Here is a look at some simple and sometimes boring or repetitive tasks that could be sorted with a bit of tech help, including a good way to organize your day.
1. Never Miss an Important Date or Appointment
All of us are perfectly capable of writing down a date in our diary or remembering an appointment in our head but life gets in the way sometimes and you can easily forget or miss something you had scheduled. Using a resource like Google Calendar on your smartphone is a great example of how you can automate your scheduled tasks and appointments by setting reminders and letting the app tell you where you need to be and when.
2. Driving Made Easier
Some aspects of driving your car might be pleasurable to you but the daily commute along with finding a parking space is probably not near the top of your list of things you enjoy doing.
Although fully automated driverless cars are a little way off becoming the normal mode of transport for everyone there are various stages of automation already being introduced, which can make driving safer and less hassle.
If you buy a new Fiat, for example, there is a good chance that the model will come loaded with gadgets and technology such as navigation and automated parking to get you where you want to be and take the stress out of parking the car in a tight spot.
3. Shopping More Efficiently
If you’re going to be taking the car to the grocery store you want to make sure that you get everything you need in the one visit, rather than getting home to find that you are missing one or two essential ingredients off your list. Services like Postmates are cropping up in all sorts of different places and highlight how you can engage with technology to improve your shopping experience and get help with other daily chores. This service connects you to local stores and restaurants and arranges delivery to your door, normally within the hour, so you can now get someone else to do the running around for all the things you need.
4. Subscription Inspiration
Another way to sort out your daily chores and decisions is to make use of the various subscription services that are designed to try and make your life more productive and easier to manage.
If you don’t mind getting a suggestion on what to have for dinner and getting it delivered to your door, or like the idea of getting razors, beauty products, and other things delivered before you run out of the last ones, all of these things are perfectly possible if you organize your life with a few well-chosen subscriptions to do the running around for you.
Automation is aimed at freeing us from a variety of daily tasks that need to be taken care off, but if someone else is doing it for you that gives you more time and freedom to be more productive.
