Calculate How Much Your Spare Time Is Worth Using This Handy Quiz
Thought it might not seem like we have a lot of time outside of our busy lives, if we really took the time to break it down and look at how we spend our waking hours, we might realize that we do. Have you ever really thought about how much spare time you have and how much your spare time is worth? How much time do you spend on tasks that can be completed by other people? In what way would delegating your tasks save you time and money? What types of activities are worth your time and money?
These might not be questions you ask yourself on a regular basis, maybe because you don't even have the time to consider these ideas. Well, the Norwegian task service company FINN has created an online test that will help you answer those questions. The test takes only a minute or two and comprehensibly breaks down the value of your spare time. It makes personalized suggestions based on your results to help you decide what tasks are worth your efforts and what tasks are appropriate to outsource.
The site helps connect people with a variety of services ranging from gardening to carpeting and every odd task in between. While you can't actually use the site's services unless you live in Oslo, you can still take the service hints they provide and find them elsewhere, like good ol' Craigslist.
