Saved by Delegation



Thanksgiving was a much needed break and now I feel ready to take on the New Year! January and February are the busiest time of year for Professional Organizers.  Fortunately, I am prepared this year because of making the decision to hire staff.  When your work load outgrows your own ability to perform, delegation is the only way to stay organized and on top of everything.
 
I'll share with you an embarrassing secret.  Last week, I forgot to pick up a package of documents I requested from a client.  One appointment ran over, the school called because one of my kids wasn't feeling well, two prospective clients contacted me about our services and the next thing I knew, it was the following day and I had not picked up the documents.  This may not seem like a big deal for most business people, but for a PO this is an extremely big deal.
 
By the time I realized the mistake, my schedule was completely booked.  Fortunately, my Assistant Organizer was able to go to the client's office and pick up the documents early the next morning.  A simple act of delegation may have saved the image of my company, at least in the eyes of one client.

What I'm Reading . . .

  • "Raising Financially Fit Kids", Joline Godfrey
    Common sense ideas and insight into raising kids who are wll-prepared to manage their own finances as young adults.
  • "The Success Principles: How To Get From Where You Are to Where You Want To Be" by Jack Canfield
    This book really got me excited about pursuing my goals and growing my business. There is a heavier emphasis on materialism than what I am comfortable with, but overall this is an inspiring book.
  • "The Organized Executive", by Stephanie Winston
  • "No B.S. Time Management for Enterpreneurs" by Dan Kennedy
