I heard you might want to go out and live life. That is fantastic. The one thing you must remember, though, is that you cannot phone it in. If you are going to go and live life, it is you who has to go and live it.
We all want to do things. And yet, there is a crucial question to entertain. How many times do we want to do something? And how many times do we want those things done for us? We all look good, taking credit for a job done well. To do so, we have to work for whatever we are getting recognition. That is so easy to forget in these days of hiring an $80 ghostwriter or a $10 an hour virtual assistant that we tell what we want, and they set it up for us.
Don’t get me wrong it’s great to have assistance whenever you are working on large projects. Useful assistants are worth their weight in gold. They will help you, and they will do for you, and even tell you when you’re getting off track. But you can’t hand the project to them and ask them to let you know when they complete it. You need to provide the leadership and guide the teamwork to make the things you do great.
Having an assistant does not mean that you get to kick back and relax. Having an assistant means that you can get twice the work done. And of course, with twice the work completed, twice the reward could easily roll in. These are just some things to consider.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
