The Art of Delegating

Have you ever said to yourself, or even out loud, “It’s easier if I just do it myself.”?

It’s a common theme for many of us.  The results however are not always very productive since we rob ourselves of time and energy, increase our sense of frustration and deny someone the opportunity to learn and grow.

In Principle 41 the advice from Jack Canfield is to Build a Powerful Support Team and Delegate to them. 

Do what you do best and hire out the rest!

And… take this advice from General George S. Patton “Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.”

Redefine Time

Principle #40.

My mentor, Christian Mickelsen, says “we have all the time in the world”.

If that’s true:

  • Why are we so busy?
  • Why isn’t there ever enough time?
  • Why is our to-do list never complete?
  • Why do we run late?

What if, as Jack Canfield suggests, we “Redefine Time”?

What if as Christian Mickelsen says “We Have All The Time In The World”?

I think the answer is found in how we choose to spend our time: focus on what’s important; be prepared to say No and do what brings you joy.

“It is not that we have a short time live, but that we waste a lot of it”

Leave that alone and…

Stay focused on what you want to do.

I met with a  bright young woman this morning.  We talked about a business idea I want to bring to market.

I’m excited about this idea and come to find out she’s just as excited! In fact she’s thinking even bigger than me and loves doing all the things I don’t love doing.

Question.  Can I afford to hire her?

Answer. I can’t afford not to hire her!

In Part Three of Jack Canfield’s Success Principles the focus is to “Build Your Success Team”.  Today I found my success team…Principle 39 “Stay Focused on Your Core Genius” and I will add hire someone for their Core Genius and build your Success Team.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
