Lego – we’ve all played with it as children, but what does it have to do with my business?


If you were to look up the meaning of Business Administration you’d probably walk away with an understanding that it has to do with all the different functions and positions within the company structure. Each role or position of responsibility is a building block – a piece of a collective that makes up an enterprise. 

Grant for a moment that you’re a grown-up still in touch with your playful inner-child. If you were to buy yourself a new Lego set, you’d find yourself with a box filled with thousands of colourful pieces, packaged according to the specific model pictured on the box. Having the ‘big picture’ image of the model in mind, you would then begin sorting and piecing together that image – block by block, piece by piece. Your business model may seem perfect, but putting it all together demands patience, time, and imagination. And of course all the building blocks required by your particular model. 

Co-operation and communication between different business elements is made possible by the links between the blocks. A virtual assistant in Johannesburg could for example fit quite snuggly into the linking role you require. Experienced entrepreneurs all agree that part-time assistants can reduce your workload by up to 50% and double your revenue from the previous year when you had no administrative assistance. 

Whether your Lego model inevitably holds or fails depends on the time you invest in it. With neglect, it may stand for weeks without making any progress, resulting in halted growth and reduced returns on initial investments. Freeing yourself from tedious administrative tasks could buy you the time needed to focus on the structure and strategy of your business.

Don’t allow yourself to get bogged down by emails and filing. Mornings are best for applying your energy to what really matters: strategy and growth. Learn to delegate and let your virtual assistant deal with managing your blogs, social media pages and general office administration. Entrusting your Lego model to someone else from time to time can be daunting, but it’s crucial if you wish to save time and avoid short-term losses.
