When you begin to feel incredibly tense having to juggle it all at the office and at home, it may be a sign that you need to start delegating your day-to-day activities. Delegating requires an ability to let go which can be immensely difficult if you’re unaccustomed to it.
The good news is that anyone can delegate, and the benefit of such practise range from having more time to build your business to reducing stress. If you’re keen on relieving some of life’s tension, here are seven things worth delegating in order to be able to better enjoy your life.
Everyone’s experienced the stress when the tax season rolls around and we’re armed with a calculator preparing to calculate our taxes.
Tax compliance is a serious affair and failure to correctly file one’s taxes can have serious legal ramifications. However, this can be avoided by delegating it to an accountant.
Having an accountant onboard can greatly reduce your stress level outside of tax season. Accounting professionals maintain your overall financial portfolio thus you can delegate errands such as sending invoices and keeping track of all financial information.
Better yet, a solid bookkeeping record can improve your chances of obtaining formal financing when you need it later down the line.
2. Routine Tasks
When it comes to routine tasks, these activities are time-consuming and can easily pile up, yet many don’t turn to the assistance of part-time labour to alleviate the workload.
Routine tasks such as doing laundry or household cleaning, can be delegated to anyone who’s willing to do them. Today’s modern times have even allowed us to appoint someone to do our grocery shopping through a tap on a smartphone.
No matter if it’s contacting your neighbour or using an app, delegating routine work is very possible.
3. Tasks That You Dislike
Clerical duties such as scheduling meetings and making travel plans aren’t for everyone. One person’s dislike is another person’s preference and thanks to the internet, you have a global database of freelancers.
If there are tasks you’re not particularly passionate about, you can delegate them to virtual assistants or university students who are freelancing a bit.
In doing so, you’ll have ample to invest your energy on an activity that you are actually interested in.
4. Social Media Marketing
In an increasingly tech-savvy society, self-marketing has become a full time job; that job often being referred to as personal branding. Although plenty of people have access to smartphones, not everyone has enough time to create catchy social media posts. Furthermore, while platforms such as Tailwind help you schedule your social media posts, it can take up a good amount of time if it’s done daily.
The upside is that there are many social media marketers out there whom you can delegate your branding efforts to. Digital-media-related jobs are booming and with new occupations like influencers popping up, you’ll never be short of part-time assistance to hire.
