One way to get a lot of pressure off you as an entrepreneur is to delegate work. But in order to delegate, you have to trust your employees. This doesn't just mean trusting them with money or trusting them to be honest. It also means trusting them to do the job right.
It might seem like a cliché to say that you have to change with the times but it is nonetheless true. Many organizations are set up in a certain way and continue to function in that way 10 or even 20 years later. But the fact is that the things that people valued 10 or 20 years ago are different from the things that people value now.
There are certain jobs that lend themselves very easily to job burnout. For example, if you're a social worker or a customer service representative working night shifts, chances are you're experiencing fatigue, depression and a general sense of unease most of the time.
