Goin’ To The Chapel

8 weeks from today, Jon and I will say our I do’s in Las Vegas! It feels so far away, yet too close to finish things on time. This is why we went through a hotel for a package. We don’t have to do a whole heck of a lot other than show up, dress, tux, and wedding party in tow. But this post isn’t about my wedding. That will come later! After all, this blog was created for writing and travel.

Today I want to talk about delegating. I’ll be honest. When I’m at home, I delegate almost everything to my fiancé. He’s my future house husband and an artist. Between working my full time day job & going to school all while trying to break into freelance writing, I really don’t have a lot of time. I don’t like housework to begin with and I am extremely fortunate to have it done for me.

It’s when I’m at work that delegating is an issue. I never realized this was a problem until  I took personal development classes to be a manager, which turned out to be “not my thing.” When it comes to my work, I’ve always been a “if you want it done right, you have to do it yourself” type of person. I took on project after project after project. I had no way of keeping up with my regular work and extra tasks. Looking back now, this is one of the reasons I kept my position and didn’t move into management. I much prefer these days to go into work, do my job, and leave.

Delegating is important. We all have to do it in some area of our lives. Just make sure you delegate to people you trust, or you’ll end up even more stressed than if you had just done the job yourself.

This week, try delegating a task just to see how it goes. Do you feel relieved? Stressed? Tell me about it in the comments!
