Are You Consuming Your Career, or is Your Career Consuming You?

Leadership, Networking, Productivity, Small Business, Virtual Assistance

If you are wondering with a snicker if there is a difference in the two, then congratulations! You are most likely in Group 1 and wake up whistling when you start working, have a goofy nonstop grin on your face, and dream about what the next day is going to bring. If you are in Group 2, you hesitantly clicked on this blog post because you are afraid to read — you are in so deep that you wonder if you will ever pull yourself out, drowning in the black sea of paperwork, unanswered emails, voice mails you don’t want to listen to, and ultimate despair. Yeah, a little melodramatic, but sadly it’s also a fact.

GET OUT OF THE QUAGMIRE! Did you choose to be an entrepreneur or pick your present career path so you could be swallowed up by all that you encompass? Nope, didn’t think so.

Then it’s time to effect some serious change. If you want to avoid the ulcer that’s undoubtedly going to be part of your future (and really want to click your voice mail button without cringing), these three simple steps are imperative.

  1. Make a list of everything you do. (Okay, the major things you do.)   
  2. Arrange the items in your list in order of priority.
  3. Highlight the items on this list that you absolutely despise doing.

All right, here comes the easy part. Look at your highlighted items. If these are tedious tasks that bog you down, things that are just too time consuming and keep you away from the things you love to do, then why are you doing them? Yes, they need to be done. But why are you doing them? There are actually people out there who like to file… who like bookkeeping… who enjoy some of the techy stuff you abhor. Perhaps, you are at the early point in your career where you aren’t quite an entrepreneur, but rather a wantrepreneur — but you’ll get there.

Swallow your pride and get help! You don’t have to do it alone. You tell yourself that until you get to where you want to be, you can’t afford to pay for the help; the truth of the matter is that you can’t afford not to. A virtual assistant can get you on track and keep you there, and you only pay for the hours you need. The right CRM program can help you streamline your contacts so you can concentrate on building your client base while still providing excellent customer service to your existing clients.

Work smarter, not harder as the cliche goes. Being a business owner, manager or entrepreneur doesn’t mean settling for a life of drudgery in the paperwork trenches. Let it go. Get back to doing what you love so you can once again consume your career… and not let your career consume you.
