One of the things I’ve learned over the years is that it’s a lot more stressful if you try to do absolutely every little detail yourself
when you are planning an event.
There are opportunities to do a little delegating regardless of what you are planning. Let’s face it, you want to enjoy the event too and it’s hard if you are managing every miniscule detail so…here’s my advice:
DELEGATING can be a good thing. Make a checklist of who is
doing what and when they are doing it, then keep tabs. It’s easier to keep track and saves you some running and time. However, make sure those who you delegate to are people that you can depend on and won’t do the task in a way you wouldn’t.
Many people WANT to help and can contribute something even if it’s small like a few bags of chips or bottles of soda or wine. Make wise choices of who you let help and it will make your life easier.
Delegating gives you more time, makes those that help feel like they are contributing, and just makes for a much more STRESS FREE party!
