Are you a ‘work slut’?

Do you often feel like Rhianna? That all you do is ‘work work work work work work’? Is it possible that you are in fact a ‘work slut’?

I don’t mean someone that behaves promiscuously in the workplace and I don’t mean a workaholic! By ‘work slut’ I ask, are you taking on everything? Are you doing other people’s jobs at the expense of your own? Are you flitting from one task to another? If the answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you may well be a work slut!

Being a ‘work slut’ is fine as long as you stay safe! 😉 It is great that you are a team player and that you are helping those who may be under pressure but make sure that when you are helping others and taking on more work, it isn’t stopping you from actually being productive! Stay safe and keep a list of priorities and deadlines to hand. By doing this you ensure that all of your important work gets done and that you are fitting additional things in while being realistic about what you can take on. (see my previous post on ‘Is this Fundraising?’ where I talk about urgent vs important work.)

In fundraising, lots is going on all the time; new projects starting and needing reporting back on, donations coming in and donors needing thanking, events on the horizon and guest lists needing monitoring! It is very easy to become a ‘work slut’ but by staying organised and focused you will stay safe and productive while also being a helpful team player!
