"If you want to have it all, then don't try to do it all."
Loco Direct was birthed in 2018 when we were going through our biggest challenge in life - parenting.
We became new parents to the most beautiful girl in the world.
Our lives changed.
It became richer
But it also became a tad more difficult
There wasn’t enough time.
Not enough time for sleep, not enough uninterrupted time for building our business and careers. Not enough time for gym/ movie/ hair etc.
There is always some errands to run, a meal to cook, a diaper to change...
We couldn’t have it all.
Until someone gave us this advice:
“Build a team and delegate”
He wasn’t just talking about it in the context of our business. He was talking about life in general.
If you want to have it all, then don’t try to do it all.
Because there is a cost in every decision.
If you decide to cook, you are taking time away from work
If you decide to work, you could be taking time away from family
There is a cost in every decision.
The tip is, always delegate the task that someone else can do better (more cost-effectively or efficiently) than you can, so that you have time, to do the stuff that really matters to you.
For example, according to research, we spend an average of 3 hours per week on grocery shopping. That includes the actual shopping time, travelling time and the waiting time. Sure, grocery shopping can be fun and therapeutic. But not when it is a compulsory errand you have to run every single week.
Imagine with me, if you can delegate that task to someone else, and have 3 hours every week for yourself. You get to do what you love, what would you do?
“I’ll spend it on building my business. Just thinking about it, how to grow it …”
“I’ll spend it with my kids, bring them to the swimming pool, and instead of rushing through it, I’ll relax in the pool together with them”
“I’ll catch up on some beauty sleep”
“I’ll meet more friends for coffee”
“I’ll spend it on me - just hanging out with myself, some quiet time meditating or reading”
And that’s really it. Isn’t it?
Our needs aren’t all that complicated. And it doesn’t have to be difficult.
It is possible to have a little more time for yourself.
But it will require you to be very mindful in choosing what you NOT do.
You will have to say ‘no’ to some tasks, so that you can say ‘yes’ to those that really matters to you.
But errands need to be run. Household chores aren’t going to magically disappear. Someone has to go and get groceries!
Yes that’s all true.
But it doesn’t have to be you.
Build a team
Like at work, you build a team to whom you could delegate tasks to.
Same logic. You build a team for your life management.
There is an African Proverb that goes “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”.
We at Loco Direct isn’t going to change your life.
We can’t. Only you can.
But you can make us part of your team in life.
We have years of experience in running your grocery errands. Because you see, we made that our job. We’ve invested our time and money to build a career where we could buy and sell, at wholesale prices, products that you need in your house. Cleaning, personal care items, cosmetics, cooking aids ….products that we have been buying, selling and delivering for years to customers all around Kuala Lumpur.
So since we have already made it our job to do the shopping for you, then wouldn’t it be a waste of time if you are also doing the same thing?
We pick, pack and deliver your groceries to your doorsteps.
And you? You get to reclaim your 3 hours back, every week, to do what really matters to you.
Sure, you would have to pay a fee. RM10 for delivery.
The prices of goods in our stores are as good as if you were to go to the stores and get them yourselves.
In fact, maybe even better at times, if we include our “Everyday low prices”, your loyalty reward points and promotional coupons and vouchers.
So RM10 in exchange for your 3 hours per week where you get to invest in your business/ career, family, yourself? I would count that as a great deal.
