This podcast is excellent for overworked, stressed-out, frustrated executives and managers who have entirely given up on a healthy work-life balance.

First, let's see if you have this problem.

  • Do you feel stressed out and overloaded with too much work?
  • Do you feel like your phone rings all day, or you are constantly interrupted by questions from your team?
  • Or that you are fighting fires every day and not getting a lot done?
  • Or does it feel like your career is stalled, and you're not making the progress you know you should be making?

 If so, you may need to brush up on your delegation skills!

There's a finite amount that you personally can do. NO Matter how hard you work. After all, you can only work so many hours in a day, and there are only so many people you can help.

 And, because of the number of people you can help, questions you can answer, fires you can fight, and problems you can solve is limited, your success is limited.

These issues prevent you from getting to the bigger more important long term projects, strategies and goals that you know will advance your success.

 

You may be the product of your own strong knowledge. The better you are at knowing  your job and the more you make yourself indispensable, the more people will expect from you and rely on you.

This can lead to undue pressure and work overload: you can't do everything everyone wants or needs.

And this can leave you feeling stressed, unhappy, and starting to burn out with a feeling of diminishing motivation.

Don't feel alone. This is a very common challenge and I am shocked it has taken me this long to put out a podcast on the topic.

I find this affects new managers and executives all the way up the chain to the CEO and Business Owner.

Yes, it's common, but it is also so self-limiting. It places an arbitrary cap on not only your personal growth but your company's growth as well.

The Business Principle called the Peter Principle is at play here.
