Do NOT Do it All by Yourself!

Are you in the midst of a mammoth development project? If so, going it alone is a recipe for disaster. In this handy article, we’ve broken down just a few of the reasons why you need NerdCloud on your side if you want to create stellar software and grow your business.


Five signs you’re taking on too much work

Development projects are often much more time-consuming than anticipated. Here are a few warning signs that your latest venture is too much to handle on your own:


1. Your workdays are getting longer

Are you regularly burning the midnight oil? Perhaps you’re turning down thrilling party invitations to focus on work? If your personal life is flailing, it’s time to consider enlisting a few helping hands. Life is for living, after all!


2. Your productivity has taken a hit

According to research conducted at Stanford University, people who work around 70 hours a week are no more productive than those who work 56 hours. If you’re putting in countless hours while reaping few rewards, you may have hit your productivity limit. Remember – you’re only human, and this is nothing to be ashamed of!


3. Your work is sloppy

Do you keep leaving bugs in your code? If you’re wasting time correcting mistakes, you may be overloaded. Even the smartest developers are prone to slip-ups when tired, stressed, and overworked. The best way to remedy the situation is to lighten your load and hire an extra set of eyes to spot crucial errors.  


4. You spend half your time Googling new concepts

Unless you understand everything there is to know about software development, you’re probably spending a significant chunk of time learning a new coding language or Googling complex concepts. With a team of development experts on your side, you can pool your knowledge to speed up the project.


5. You’re burnt out

Lots of us have heard of burnout, but few of us are aware of its destructive effects. In short, burnout is a mental and physical condition caused by overwork. It can seriously affect a person’s health and quality of life and should be addressed as soon as it starts to rear its nasty head. Typical symptoms of burnout include:

  • Fatigue and daytime sleepiness
  • Low mood and irritability
  • Stress
  • Putting constant pressure on yourself to be productive
  • Relationship problems
  • Backache and headaches
  • Digestive problems


Sound familiar? If you’ve been feeling unwell after taking on a significant amount of work, don’t hesitate to get other people on board with your project. The longer you delay, the worse your symptoms will get.
