Making use of an assistant

Making use of an assistant

Having a greatย assistantย can be a game-changer. But learning to delegate tasks can be time-consuming if you don't have a lot of experience.

Tree tips can help you save time when delegating tasks to your assistant using a spreadsheet such as Excel or Google Sheets.

Create a master project list

Create a master project list

Getting everyone on the same page can be challenging if your team has separate to-do lists.

A master project list is helpful.ย Let your assistant own the project list and put everything they do on the list, even small tasks such as checking the mail or paying the light bill.

The list can be helpful should your assistant go on vacation or if they are sick.

Break it down into sub-lists

If you have several things going on simultaneously, create tabs or sub-lists to keep it all straight. For example, tab names could be active projects, archived projects, ongoing/recurring projects, etc.

Within each tab, you will have the project/task name, the date assigned, the date due, and other people involved.

Break each list further by giving each one a priority rating. For example, number one for important items, number two items should only be started once number one items are complete, and number three items are as time allows.

Colour code it

Use colour to highlight new updates within your master list. For example, your assistant could write all their updates in red, and once you've read them, you can change the colour to black.

You can write your notes in a different colour so that your assistant knows that you left a response, and when they're done reading, they can change the colour back.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.



Donโ€™t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!


Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
