Stop Doing Everything Yourself: 4 Reasons to Ask for Help

Posted by Kelly Chen in Business

As a small business owner, you may think you’re being super productive when you take on everything yourself, but here are four reasons you need to let go of perfectionism and ask others for help:

  1. Focused energy = a positive environment
    As we mentioned last week, trying to do everything takes your focus away from what your strengths actually are. Why did you start your business? What are you uniquely good at? Recognize the strengths of your team members too and allow them to step up. A team playing to their strengths means…
  2. Increased productivity
    With a giant to-do list, you’re likely to juggle multiple tasks at once thinking you’re being efficient. Experts say multitasking actually splits your focus, meaning you’re more prone to making mistakes. It also makes you less productive and reduces your IQ (!).
  3. Reduced stress levels and improved health
    When you make long to-do lists you’re putting a lot of pressure on yourself to get everything done and overworking yourself – this type of stress wreaks havoc on both your mental and physical health.
  4. Free time!
    A decreased workload ultimately means more free time.
