When you sit down to start your workday, look around your office. I’ll bet there’s that one person who keeps the ship afloat by handling the thousands of essentials that let you concentrate on your actual job. Notice that as soon as that person sits down to a cup of hot coffee, her boss will ask her to do something that will last until the coffee is cold.
We have a very effective lady in our office who makes things happen. Fire and forget, you know it’s handled. Of course, the trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
Just remember that no one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.
Today is Administrative Professionals Day. Nuff said.
