Being Monday morning, you probably have a pile of to-dos sitting on your ‘virtual’ desk.
I invite you to consider each of those to-dos and ask yourself:
Do I need to be the person to do this?
Be relentless here. Try not to censor from the perspective of “but I do it best” (remember the being too picky post?) or “I don’t have time to show someone else how to do it right now (it will take as much time to show someone how to do something as to actually do it – maybe double the time at the most – BUT then you don’t have to do it again.)
And if you are up for the challenge – pass along one of those to-dos to someone on your team! If you are really up for the challenge pass 5 things along (and do a happy dance for getting them off your plate!)
If you are a Virtual Assistant or Online Business Manager, take a look at your client’s to-do list – is there anything that you could take off their plate and do for them? Chances are they may not even realize that you are willing or able to help with some things – and will LOVE to get your unsolicited offer of help.
