“I turned down a scholarship to Yale. The problem with college is that there’s a tendency to mistake preparation for productivity. You can prepare all you want, but if you never roll the dice you’ll never be successful.” Shia LaBeouf
To be productive requires a change in mindset. It’s not enough to keep busy, as there are a lot of busy people who aren’t productive. You need to examine if what you’re doing is essential to accomplishing your goals. At this point, you have taken your first step to productivity.
1. Delegation Is Key.
You must first let go of the notion that you need to care for every little detail of your business, or it won’t get done properly. This has led many business owners to exhaustion, and the honest truth is that they aren’t caring for every little detail of their business.
A virtual assistant can care for your delegated tasks, and the longer you work with them, the easier it gets to delegate tasks to them.
Let them know what is important to you, what needs to be done, and what your business goals are. Virtual assistants can work with you to systemize your business so that you are ensured that all of these tasks are cared for and on time. When you try to do it yourself, things fall through the cracks.
3. Remove Distractions.
Another key to increasing productivity involves delegating the things that are only distractions but aren’t necessarily productive at the moment. Take email for example. There are pieces of email that must be cared for immediately, some that needs to be trashed, and some that can be cared for on a scheduled basis.
Your virtual assistant can screen your emails so that you are only reading email that needs your personal attention.
Many use their virtual assistant to care for their research assignments. With that out-of-the-way, they can cut through the non-productive time of research and get on with their projects.
