What happens when you reach a point that you were overwhelmed by work?
learned as a lawyer that’s the best way to get things done is to do them myself. Never say no and always work as hard as he possibly can. But eventually, there’s a breaking point.
I learned that lesson the very hard way when my overworking lead to my doctor telling me I’d be dead inside of three months. She was very graphic about it. Still, stubborn lawyer, I persisted until I developed a chronic immune disease.
That’s when you realize you need help but often it’s a little too late. You’re already swamped and don’t have the time, or really desire, to focus on hiring the right person. You panic hire!
That means that the first person who comes along that seems relatively honest, you like them and they’re breathing becomes your new employee. You panicked and all reasonableness went out the window.
It’s very likely the person doesn’t have the skills or the attitude to help you serve your clients well. Now you have a new problem. You’re doing almost all the work and you have to supervise somebody else who is not working out well. Very frustrating!
