A Virtual Assistant’s Commitment: Learn New Things

Ye hey! I am done with my Virtual Assistant assignments.  I have featured in my blog 10 tools, programs and websites I learned in the course of two months. Two months in front of the computer cutting, pasting, print screening, image cropping, doing Google searches and watching instructional videos in Youtube.

Thank God for Google, Youtube and everything that is the Internet. The Internet has become my playground of learning in those two months of working on this task.  Jomar was right when he said “Google is your friend.” And so are Youtube and the Internet, in general.

Google searches have become a way of life to most of us who wants to find answers to questions we encounter every day. Same goes for Youtube, where you can watch many instructional videos of anything made in our world. I think almost everything in this world can now be seen in the Internet.

I included.  I can now be seen in the internet.

How so? Through this exercise of creating how to do powerpoints and blogging, I became a part of the Internet. I get to learn, create something from what I learned and share it to the world. And that makes me feel good.

But that doesn’t stop there. Learning should stop when the task is done. I think this should be a mindset of a virtual assistant.

     Never stop learning. Always challenge yourself to learn something new and acquire new skills.

Learning new things engages the mind. It what keeps our brains active and our psychology young.  We develop ourselves through learning. That is how we form our lives. As Jim Rohn said,

programs, tools, and websites

By Pipe

Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.

So, I am going to learn more tools there is. It’s going to be part of my life, to learn tools that can help me in my virtual assistant work in the future. This how I make myself better.

This is my commitment: “To learn at least two new programs, tools, and websites a month.” 

There is so much to learn. That gets me excited! I am moving forward.

What will I learn next?

Follow my blog and share this journey with me.

    Being a virtual assistant is not only to work from home, it is also to learn in your daily experiences. Online tools are very useful when starting as a virtual assistant. It can help virtual assistant to do tasks a lot easier. I also read this blog that there are four types of virtual assistants; General Virtual Assistant, Article/Content Writers, SEO Specialist and Web Development/Maintenance/Programming. Virtual assistants are all over the world and can be hired from job sites like monster.com or freelancing sites like Guro.com and Odesk.com. These are sites that most virtual assistant pass their resume to be able to get hired by clients. You can check this article for more information about virtual assistant.
