“No person will make a great business who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit,” says Andrew Carnegie.
Ask any successful person who is enjoying an effective balance between work and none work life how they are able to achieve their goals while battling a diary full of commitments, a deluge of emails, continuous domestic chores that never cease coming and time to spend with friends and family members, and you will discover that they did not handle all their life tasks by themselves neither did they take all the credit.
With the hectic work life of Lagosians and the increasing demands of our time by other pressing, personal tasks, beside that of the workplace, it is becoming more overwhelming when you consider the number of tasks we are expected to accomplish and functions to attend, within the unchanging 24 hours. The pressure in modern workplace, the series of domestic chores begging for our attention plus the Lagos mad traffic, are all worrying factors increasing the stress of most of the working populace in the state.
In contemporary day, the demand for high performance is an uncompromising policy in every private driven establishment and to meet up with this policy, employees are expected to focus primarily on their core duties as opposed to merging them with their personal tasks and errands. As right as this is, it is however, unfortunate to say that is not the case in most organisations. The reality is that, some, if not most employees are found shuttling between work and personal tasks within the work hour thereby under-performing in their official duties, at the long run.
The attitude of employees’ jumping between work and personal tasks during work hour is becoming a worrisome issue in the workplace and some persons have lost their job due to this act. Not been focus on your core tasks in the workplace has adverse consequences: it brings about divided attention to work which result to distractions from core responsibility, poor execution of tasks, not meeting dead-line and poor performance in a general sense. In other words, the employee’s performance and productivity is affected badly and it tells on the growth of both the employee and the company.
Too many things compete for our attention every day and the truth remains that we cannot do everything by ourselves just as we cannot be everywhere at the same time. Both work and personal tasks are important but one must find how best to execute them effortlessly that none would suffer. One sure way to achieve this balance is to delegate tasks and functions.
