Ok, apart from my main web dev business I have been involved in another project with a group of others (7 in the group counting myself); it's a very much involved project as we are doing our best to do it the best that we can and we have been discussing and working on it since late January. Of late I have started to get a little frustrated as it seems there is a few people in the group that are putting the majority of the work in and the others don't seem to be doing as much. I don't mind working hard, but it starts to get under your skin when you start feeling like you're one of the only ones that are working hard whilst the others are sitting back doing nothing. To be fair though, I do work on the PC and hence I am on it most of the day, which is why I guess I get so much work done; in addition to that there are members in our group with new born babies, some people dealing with personal issues and also health issues, so I can understand to a degree why these members haven't been able to put as much time in as some. Another factor is, shortly, there is going to be a MASSIVE job to do the web development part, and with me being the only current dev on board, the thought of doing all that by myself is starting to get overwhelming if things stay as they are. We are looking to add another dev, but figure they would be hard to find since they would be joining as a partner and not as a paid employee. How can I handle this? I don't know what these peoples day to day lives are like so I don't want t call them out, but at the same time I feel if they want the business to succeed they need to make more of an effort. Has anyone dealt with issues like this before? What have you done? How do I deal with it? I have thought of perhaps utilising something like a productivity tool where people are supposed to mark down what they have done every week, then when they don't have much to mark down they will realise themselves, "Oh sh*t, I'm not doing much am I!?". But at the same time, am I just giving them another task to do which I may end up having to chase them for and give myself more headaches!?
