The USA-born Virtual Assistant Provider gives an overview of tasks business owners, professionals or parents should consider outsourcing to personal assistants
On June 12, 2020, OkayRelax, a Virtual Assistant Provider that empowers individuals to focus on their core responsibilities, published a blog entitled 9 Tasks You Can Outsource to Virtual Assistants. The blog mainly discussed three things: the importance of delegation, why delegate tasks to a virtual personal assistant, and examples of tasks virtual personal assistants can help busy individuals with.
The Importance of Delegation
Many individuals such as business owners, professionals, and parents find it challenging to accomplish all their tasks in a day. With so many things to do in limited time, their goal shifts from thoroughly completing each task to getting everything done. As a result, they end up either neglecting some of their tasks or working poorly on them, which most likely causes new problems to occur. Ironically, as they try to be productive, they only finish a few tasks because of the anxiety and stress that comes with accomplishing one thing knowing that there are many more things to tick off the task list. Apart from experiencing mental health problems, an individual who keeps on juggling excessive priorities may also suffer from physical health problems such as sleep deprivation, or worse, insomnia.
In times when they are unable to finish everything, many individuals wish for more time. They see the recurring problem as a lack of time issue when it’s not. Individuals need to realize that no one can control time. Instead of wishing for more time — something impossible to happen — they should start focusing on things they can control to address the problem.
One overlooked explanation for the recurring problem is the excessive number of priorities busy individuals need to manage daily. When the inability to finish everything on time happens repeatedly no matter the adjustments one makes on their schedule, then that can be the best explanation. In this scenario, delegating tasks is the key solution. When individuals delegate minor tasks, they empower themselves with the ability to focus on the major stuff that truly needs their attention. It helps them stay organized, efficient, and productive. Moreover, it provides them with more time to take care of themselves, which is ultimately essential and imperative.
Why Delegate Tasks to a Personal Assistant
In this day and age where much of the work is done through the use of the computer and enabled via the Internet, some busy individuals seek the support of online personal assistants to manage their tasks. Below are the common reasons why:
Versatility. Virtual assistants can handle a variety of tasks. Hiring a virtual assistant is like hiring three or four professionals because of the many functions he or she can do. For example, there's a Marketing Virtual Assistant who can handle social media management, blog writing, and administrative tasks all at once.
Expertise. Generally, online personal assistants are professionals proficient in various remote work. As they primarily serve as support to their clients, client satisfaction is their absolute priority.
Only takes a fraction of a cost. Hiring online personal assistants is not costly. As remote and independent professionals, online personal assistants are responsible for the equipment and tools they need to fulfill deliverables.
