How’s Your Week Going So Far?

You are almost there . . . to the end of your week!

Take today as one-of-those-days, you try to finalize some projects, plans, reports or anything that has a deadline attached to it . . . Reminder next week is going to be a short work week.

If possible,  “don’t leave anything on the desk” – rid your desk of all the unfinished business of the week. Actually, on Friday – clear off your desk, then clean it, and finally  dust it along with all your knick-knacks around the office. You want to be able to enjoy your time with family and friends over the Thanksgiving Holiday, while having a Peace of Mind that you took care of everything . . . no strings untied.

Some music while you’re getting all your projects done – Enjoy!

I have a business that helps people simplify their daily lives, so they feel more efficient, less stress, with a happier lifestyle.  

In today’s world when time is of luxury, because people are busier than ever the services provided by a concierge can be invaluable.

Here are six benefits of hiring a concierge service:

  1. Convenience – one call to cover all you have on your to-do List
  2. Save Time – your concierge can make extra hours in the day for you by assisting you in crossing off all those items on your to-do list.
  3. Increased Productivity – delegating the minor tasks of a big project to your concierge, your productivity multiples as you are able to focus on the important parts of the projects.
  4. Lifestyle Management – your concierge enables you to not only delegate your tasks but enjoy your lifestyle better.
  5. Better Health – delegating chores to your concierge can relieve a lot of stress, this allows for a happier lifestyle which provides better health.
  6. Emergency Support – you can always call your concierge in an emergency situations. This could be anything from childcare, running a very important errand, checking on your home while on a business trip. A concierge works well under pressure, with providing the necessary contacts to be able to source most things that you may be in need of in your time of an emergency.

Your concierge can give you your health back by taking away the stress of all those little tasks that add up on your “To-Do” list and never goes away. Above all, you can feel secure in knowing your concierge will manage your task list with anonymity and confidentiality.

Making Meetings Count

Making Meetings Count . . . If they’re Absolutely Necessary!

At work, meetings are the biggest time wasters of all. There are Monday Morning Meetings, Lunch Meetings, Training Sessions, Banquet Event Order (BEO) Meetings, Event Resume Meetings you are required to attend, but you can’t see why in the world it’s going to help you or you add help to the meeting. I’m feeling heads shaking to yes right now!

Here are The Purpose of a Meeting:

  • To solve problems
  • To reach a decision or to come to a consensus
  • To coordinate activities
  • To boost morale
  • To share information
  • To dispense educational and training information
One either Meets or one either Works - One cannot do both at the same time”

Here’s what really happens at Meetings:

  1. To provide an audience for SOMEONE – some people love to hear themselves talk, some like to have the audience to audition some of their stupid jokes and sayings, how many meetings have you attended where all you did was listen?
  2. To socialize – there are very few people that can work alone for long periods of time, meetings are a great place to catch up on office gossip, what someone had for dinner last night . . . who cares! A meeting is a great disguise for socializing.
  3. To escape from being effective – meetings are an excuse for poor work or no work at all . . . You can avoid unpleasant tasks or turn in assignments late because you were wasting your TIME at a meeting.
  4. Habit – the only reason for having many meeting is that its always been that way – regularly scheduled Monday Morning Meetings for example.
  5. To pass the buck – Very often a decision can, and should be made by an individual but he or she is reluctant to do so – he forms a committee and ask them for a decision or a recommendation. If the decision is not a good one, the committee can be blamed and no one is held responsible.

23 Tips to Making The Most of Meetings:

  1. Schedule fewer meetings
  2. Before you call a meeting, consider the cost of that meeting
  3. Don’t call a meeting unless you need advice from EVERYONE there
  4. Keep the number of participants in the meeting to a minimum
  5. Let participants know in advance if you want particular questions answered or problems solved at the meeting
  6. Distribute a detailed agenda in advance of the meeting
  7. Schedule meetings right before lunch or near end of the day
  8. Always start on time, and don’t go back over material for latecomers
  9. Open the meeting with some “housekeeping” announcements
  10. Be specific
  11. Keep it short
  12. Stay on schedule
  13. No interruptions
  14. When people want to speak during the meeting, ask them to stand
  15. No reading allowed
  16. Use visual aids
  17. Cut the troublemakers off at the pass
  18. Don’t ramble during the meeting
  19. Use a designated writer
  20. Take minutes and vow to reach a decision on each agenda item
  21. Allow people to leave after their point of business has been discussed
  22. Schedule the next meeting – at conclusion of the meeting
  23. Set a time in advance for the meeting to end and stick to that time

When it comes to meetings, always remember to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Don’t ask for, or go to, a meeting unless you have to. And once you’re in one, get to the point, so that everybody can get the heck out of the room as soon as possible and get back to using their time to get some real work done.
