I love to write. I love to take notes, and most times you’ll see me scribbling something on a note pad. It’s not because I have a bad memory, but there are too many things for me to remember sometimes with work deadlines, and family appointments.
Note taking or jotting things down as I call it is a concept that I have been trying to instill into my 10 and 12-year-old. But at that age they think they know it all and can remember everything, a point I often prove them wrong on. 🙂
Organization is like note taking. In order to be organized you need to know what you need to accomplish, how you’re going to do that, and by when the most important deadline. Having this information down makes it so much easier to map your routine and organize your work load. Being organized is such an important part of being a self-employed professional that without it I know I would truly be lost.
Every Virtual assistant should spend the time to organize their work and family schedule, and their office so that:
- They can be more efficient at the services that they provide.
- Can prioritize their schedule more effectively to give them a good work life balance.
- Have more time with their family and to do the things they love.
Without organization we as self-employed virtual assistants would not be able to efficiently help our clients and give them the best service experience that we can offer. So my tip to virtual assistants is to get yourself organized so that you can have happy clients, a happy life, and a happy work environment.
It’s great to work for yourself, but you also need to get your work life balance in check and in my opinion organization is the first place to start.
Have an organized week.
