Asking for help is not a sign of weakness.
Quiet often women are judged for taking help from those near them. Help can be from your family members, hiring a nanny or dropping your kids at creche. It is next to impossible for a woman to do everything herself. Stop falling into the trap of being a superwoman. There is nothing like a superwoman. It is all a sham and trick that is created by the media. It is a hype that is used by the society since years to make us women work harder.
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of sensible planning. Delegating work to the right people always makes you more productive and yields better results. If you can get a couple of hours for yourself once a week, then there is no harm in taking help from those around you. the problem is that we do not understand the difference between delegating the work to a person and being totally dependent on a person.
If you want to suceed in life getting the right people and delegating your work is what is going to help you in the long run. You do not necessary need man power to delegate your work. Sometimes, even machines can help you in delegation.
A lot of times, women give up big dreams because small problems creater big obstacles. The most frequent smaller problems are not able to use time effectively at home to complete household chores. One of the best ways to handle this problem would be either to hire a maid or you can slowly and steadily rely on machines. A washing Machine to wash clothes, Dish washer to wash dishes, a Robomob to mop your floor. Sometimes, simply by using the simple techniques, you can manage to reduce your daily chores.
Just try and make small changes in your routine. Delegate smaller chores to your younger ones and spouse. You just need to remember one thing. Delegate your chores to the person who will complete the task for you and not the person, who will gossip behind you for the delegation.
I have always been against Glorifying Over Work and therefore, in the year 2021, I have decided to launch this campaign “Balancing Life”and talk about this wrong practice, that we have been following since last few years. I will be talking to and interviewing around 1 lakh people in the coming 2021 and publish their interview regarding their opinion on glamourising Over Work.
