Come together

Come together

A hot sticky end to The PA Portal week. 

Working from home and being your own boss has so many advantages, but I can’t lie I would kill for an air-conditioned office right now!

It’s been an eventful week.  Some really important contracts have been signed, sealed and delivered both for my clients and me personally.  It’s so rewarding to get things finalised and ticked off the list. 

Richard Branson shared an article on LinkedIn this week about list writing and getting things done. https://goo.gl/zciBYM I’ve always highly admired him, so it’s great to discover that he is a man after my own heart, like him I have lived my life through lists.  I’m a fanatical organiser and love lists, whether old school pen and paper, Trello or Google Sheets – everyone needs a list, right?

Other events happening this week? Well, of course, it was Flying Ant Day!  It’s a big thing for the little guys! All coming together for the greater good.  They have been preparing for this day for a long time, keeping their cool, getting stuff done – much like us Virtual Assistants! When, and only when, the conditions are absolutely perfect they venture out into a brave new world to start a new colony.  Brave pioneers!

All of this reminds me of Malcolm Gladwell’s book The Tipping Point. https://goo.gl/y5m8QG A magic moment when something starts to spread and ultimately how the little things really do make a big difference.  Getting all those little things to come together, whether that be all those little flies or your admin sorted for you, really can make all the difference!
