Reducing the Overall Work Load

I’m a hands on kind of guy when it comes to work. I like to take care of matters by myself and I don’t really like to rely on someone else. This approach was worked out for me many times, but it has also given me a bit of trouble when I take on tasks that can be a bit large for me to handle. I own a company that consists of a small team of people, and I’ve been wary about adding more people, but the each member has made great contributions. Recently I looked at corporate secretarial services to find a secretary for my company.

Normally I would do all of the work that a secretary would normally do on my own, but doing all of these tasks would often interfere with my ability to do other work. Part of being a good leader is knowing when you’ve reached your limits and when to call for help. I had to go against my do it yourself nature and find a secretary that I could deem capable of doing work to my standards. The other members of my team thought that I should have hired a secretary a long time ago.

The hiring of a secretary turned out to be a good move, because it eased the load on me and everyone else on my team. As a result, the team became more efficient. It feels good to not have to worry about certain tasks getting done, because I know that the secretary will be able to take care of them, and they’ll be done in the fastest manner possible. I still have some reservations about adding more people to the team, but I’m a little bit more relaxed on the idea, and will be willing to look at additions on a case by case basis.
