Are you overworked? A 3-minute quiz for admins

Are you overworked? A 3-minute quiz for admins

No matter how skilled and dedicated you are, you won't perform at your best if you feel consistently burdened by your job duties.

Take our quiz to see how you're doing at managing your workload. For each of the 15 statements below, rate yourself from 1 to 5, with 1 being "almost never" and 5 "almost always":

__ 1. I'm so tired when I get home that I can't enjoy my evenings.

__ 2. My team can't get its work done unless I pitch in to help.

__ 3. I tense up when I know my boss is about to ask me to work on a new task.

__ 4. Unfinished work is piling up on my desk.

__ 5. I spend more time putting out fires than doing my own work.

__ 6. I'm postponing projects until there's time to do them right.

__ 7. I often do work that others could or should do.


Learn how to master the conversation about making everyone's workload manageable. At Admin Pro Forum 2016, the special presentation "Executives & Assistants Working in Partnership" will reveal the secrets to making the door to your boss's office work both ways. Your trainer, Joan Burge, is widely considered the pioneer of administrative training and development.  See what other training will be offered!


The quiz, continued:

__ 8. I end up staying late or working on weekends to get my work done.

__ 9. I only have time to do the work that's due today.

__ 10. I find it difficult to ask for help.

__ 11. I'm the only person who knows how to do my job. 

__ 12. I'm letting important parts of my job slide.

__ 13. I feel as if I have no choice but to accept additional assignments.

__ 14. I have no time to prepare or plan for future opportunities.

__ 15. I spend Sunday night thinking of all the things I''ll have to rush to accomplish on Monday morning.approaching.

What do your answers mean?

Add up your ratings. A lower total, of course, means you're less likely to feel overworked. If you scored less than 40, you're probably in good shape—assuming, that is, that you still feel engaged and effective in your job. An admin with a very low score—say, 25 or lower—is potentially bored, unchallenged and ready to move on.

At the other extreme, if you scored more than 60, there's probably little question that you not only feel overworked, but actually are overloaded. There is an important difference between the two.

Studies from groups such as the Families and Work Institute found that feelings of overwork, and the resulting stress and impaired performance, are only partially related to actual workload.



Admin Pro Forum 2016 is where admins will come to network and get a sense of what their colleagues are facing each day. A roster of seasoned trainers awaits at Orlando's beautiful World Center Marriott for two full days of instruction on every topic that concerns you ... but some of the best conversations will take place between sessions, with your fellow admins from all over. Learn more about what's in store at the resort.
_____________________________________

An equally important factor is how much control you feel you have over your working conditions and situation. Workers who feel they have less autonomy, flexibility and authority to set the terms of their day-to-day work life are more likely to feel overworked than other employees who feel they do have that control—even if their actual workloads are the same.

So keep that in mind as you consider your results from this quiz. Trying to change your actual workload might be an uphill and even unattainable climb. A better strategy might be to gain more control over each day's destiny. That means assuring the boss that you've got what it takes to get it all done—as long as you're free to determine how. Without that freedom, stress is sure to follow you from 9 to 5. Or is it more like 8 to 6:30...?

Come to Admin Pro Forum 2016 and learn how to stop playing catch-up!
