Have you delegated any tasks today? Unless you’re in a management position, with employees working under you, chances are you answered in the negative. Which is a shame.
How many tasks did you perform today that a person with half your brain power – or even a chimp, in some cases – could do? Furthermore: how does that make you feel at work? Chances are it makes you feel like you don’t have any value to the company.
The bad news: your boss isn’t going to give you more meaningful work just because you feel like you want it.
The good news: you can take your situation into your own hands.
There are risks, for sure. But if you want to change your situation, you have to take action. In this case, the action is delegation. How can you do that if you’re on the bottom rung of the ladder, with no one under you to whom you can delegate?
You’d be surprised at your options.
