Posted on: February 15th, 2016 by healthy1 No Comments

According to Study.com, delegation is a common practice in contracts law. Delegation occurs when a party to the contract transfers the responsibility and authority for performing a particular contractual duty to another party. Delegation doesn’t involve the transfer of contractual rights.

Being a lawyer is exhausting. Billings are based on hours worked so what is the normal response – work more hours. Is it possible to be professionally successful and not neglect your homelife, your family and yourself? It is! Simply delegate your tasks at home.

Laundry, shopping, time with family, friends, how do you fit it all in? The art of delegation – determine what your time is worth and delegate anything that isn’t worth that time. Are you worth $250 an hour? Can you pay someone less than that to clean your house, do your laundry, run your errands, fill your car with gas? Then you should. Everything from moving to shopping to cleaning can be accomplished by one phone call to a company like Task Rabbit. Outsourcing has never been easier!

The options are endless if you look for them. Virtual assistants for research, answering emails, scheduling clients. Life is almost entirely automated now. Use that to your advantage and have assistants forward only important messages to you – those of a personal nature or those that require your decision making skills.

Outsource everything possible. Start by determining your needs.

  • Do you live alone or have a large family with children?
  • Do you rent or own?
  • Do you have a vehicle or rely on public transportation?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Are you looking to create more time for a healthy lifestyle?
  • Find yourself eating out a lot or just don’t have the time to prepare healthy meals?
  • What type of law do you practice? Do you find yourself primarily in the courtroom or the office?

Different circumstances call for different assistance and if you can imagine it there’s someone out there to take care of it for you. The newest technologies are designed to “take the place of mom”. Any task that mom used to do for you can now be paid for so you can spend quality time on you.
