Think you don't have time to delegate? Think again. This may be one of your limiting beliefs holding you back from achieving your definition of success.
Get ready to delegate, without the excuses!
Welcome to Savvy Sessions #6.
Today's topic is how to delegate on the run.
Do you ever find that you're too busy in the day so you're hardly ever at your computer or you're checking things on your phone as you race between meetings?
One of the easiest tools to get your tasks across to your virtual assistant is to use something like Voxer, WhatsApp, Viber, Facebook Messenger, iMessage.
We often use WhatsApp with our clients, and the reason you do that is because you could have left a meeting, you're on the way to the car or your next meeting, or driving You simply open the app, push a button, and just record your instructions. "Hey, I'd like you to do this", "Can you send an email to so and so?", and so forth. You can even attach photos and documents to that. You might have taken notes in your meeting. Take a photo of the notes and WhatsApp them to your virtual assistant.
Often you might come out of a meeting and there's a bunch of things that you need to do, things you need to add to your action list, or things that you don't want to forget. So you could just hold down the record button, like you say, and say all of the things that need to go on an action list or that the virtual assistant might be able to take care of, and then you're just utilising every minute of the day to delegate tasks.
We have a lot of clients that actually do it while they are walking between meetings, because you can hear in the background that someone's on the run. And it saves you time from trying to write an email and so forth, or it also saves you time, actually calling someone, finding a number, calling them, waiting for them to answer, they don't answer, so you leave a voice message. So they just get rid of all of that calling and voice messages for just quick "I need this done" type of communication.
We recommend WhatsApp, Voxer, Viber, Messenger, or iMessage. Any of those tools that have the record feature.
Thank you very much for watching. That was Savvy Sessions #6.
