Personal Reflection: Delegation & Time Management

I find it easy to delegate tasks in order to manage my time effectively.


We are creatures of community, designed to live and work together. I recognize the value of other people in my life and let go of the idea that I should be able to do everything on my own.


I find it easy to delegate tasks in order to manage my time more effectively and achieve my greatest possible level of productivity.


On a good team, our different talents and skills allow us to complement each other. Together we are more dimensional and can achieve more. I take advantage of this fact and use it to my best possible good.


However, I pick my delegates carefully. I choose those who are reliable, hard working, and can take a task and run with it. I choose those who are honest and trustworthy.


When I hand off work to others, I know I can trust that it will be done and done well because I have put thought and care into the selection of my team.


Once I delegate my tasks, I let go of the need to keep my thumb on every page. I have confidence in the people around me. I make sure they are fully aware that I am available to them should they need me, but I free them to complete the task at hand.


Self-Reflection Questions:


1. Do I hang on to the idea that I need to do everything myself? If so, why?

2. Have I surrounded myself with a reliable team?

3. What part of my current workload could I delegate in order to achieve greater productivity?
