Quiz: Are You a Control Freak? 

 In Jobs Seeking People

Are You a Control Freak?  Take the Following Quiz:

Eliminate, Automate, Delegate:

  1. Do you do it yourself because it’s just easier?
  2. Do you hate to delegate because by the time you explain it, and review it, you could have done it yourself?
  3. Do you have a hard time articulating what you want?
  4. Do you become frustrated because when you do delegate, it ends up wrong or not what you envisioned?
  5. Are you the only one who can do it right?
  6. Are you the only one period?

If you answered yes to even one of these questions…you’re a control freak.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, unless it bogs you down.  If you aren’t delegating then aren’t being efficient.  Trust me, in our small shop, Deb and I experience this all the time, and came to the conclusion several years ago… “There’s got to be someone who can do this the way I want it.”  And there always is.  Take the initial time to train someone, productively correct their efforts, and get it off your plate!  If you are a one-person shop, think seriously about contracting the things that take a lot of your time or those activities that you avoid. For us, that’s accounting.
