Ironic we know, but this is often a response we get from people who really, really want to get extra support but are ‘too busy’ to get started – WTF?
The constant state of busy-ness together with a sense of complete overwhelm … and a side serve martyrdom, all adds to the inability to engage the help they need.
Some folks kinda like being busy, it gives them bragging rights in the busy stakes. God forbid they say, “actually life is pretty under control right now” – what would everyone think – but I digress.
Being too busy to outsource is akin to making sure the house is clean before the cleaners come. I must get everything organised, tidied up and a little clean before she arrives – I would hate them to think that I’m a grot.
Same for a concierge service, people think they have to sit and write their entire “to do” list, then they become concerned that we may not be able to do what they are asking and finally what if they don’t do it the same way you would.
*starts to pull hair out*
This is absolutely not the case at all, to start benefiting from outsourcing all you need to do is start with one thing – anything – and see how it goes.
Then, assess the result; did you get the outcome you wanted, did you feel better when you handed over the tasks and did it save you time? If that went well then outsource the next tasks, and then the next. Pretty simple huh? We don’t need an entire list to get started.
Worried we won’t know what to do? We’ll we’ve got 30+ years EA and 10+ years Concierge experienced so we know a thing or two about getting stuff done. We’ve managed 1000’s of requests from the mundane to the down-right bizarre! Those experiences have given us lots of insights into how to look at your request from every angle, ask questions you may not have through of and then tap into our plethora of connections and resources.
Finally, will we do the same way as you? Maybe, maybe not. We are outcome orientated so our focus is to get you to your end goal quickly, efficiently and in a cost-effective way. It doesn’t matter if we turned right rather than left, so long as the outcome is met then we’re good right?
