Boy, this challenge is trying to start some mess…
If you had a personal assistant who would do your most dreaded tasks, which items from your to-do list would you assign out?
I don’t even think that we have enough time to address this issue. Especially since I’ve been running errands all morning and indulged way more at lunch than I should have. There are so many things around my house that need to be done. If it’s any indication, there are items from my dad’s party in JULY behind me in the living room as I type.
I’m so ashamed. But too all over the place to do anything about it right now…
So what would I give off to my personal assistant?
Let’s start with this post. If I could, I would totally have someone to blog for me. I’d hire a VA to handle all of my social media. I’d feed someone my thoughts to repeat on Periscope.
Then we’d move on to laundry, dishes, dinner, dusting, driving me around. Hell, let me lay down and you just put that slice of pizza into my mouth…
But where would that get me? I understand that at some point I will need the help. Well, I’m past that point but maybe one day I will be able to afford to have someone step in and assist me. If I have someone doing everything for me, what will I learn?
As hard and time consuming as it is, I’m learning from doing things myself. If I didn’t take on the mentality that I would figure some things out for myself, I wouldn’t be in business at all!
I tell people that marriage is a ministry in itself and if I weren’t trying to do things around the house, I wouldn’t be ministering to my husband and our household. Hands-on experience will always trump watching someone else do it for you. If I had no determination or drive to do for myself, where would that leave me?
I’m a bit of a control freak, so I honestly may never know and I’m ok with that 🙂
Having so much to do and feeling like I have no time to do it, is supposed to teach me time management. Even in scripture we’re told that we need to use our time wisely; Psalms 90:2 reminds us to “…number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” One of my favorite quotes is from H. Jackson Brown and says:
Can I be happy that there’s hard work for everyone but me? I could be lazy, but I won’t be happy when I see everyone reaping the benefits of the time and effort that they’ve put into their craft. I know that personally because I’ve had to deal with the envy that comes from seeing my friends jetting off to conferences or being featured in commercials and on TV shows. But at the end of the day, I’ve done nothing to deserve those sorts of accolades. I haven’t done nearly as much as I could be doing. And that’s why I’m thankful for this blog challenge because it’s forcing me to put in the work to get where I want to be with my little business.
No lie, when I make it, I’m probably going to hire a maid.
