Entrepreneurs and small business owners alike characteristically have a difficult time delegating to others. We are all control freaks, compulsively detail oriented and so emotionally invested into what we are trying to accomplish, that we do not permit others to assist us with some of the work.Ultimately, we have no choice. No one person can do everything, all of the time because inevitably, we may become lost in minute details, overwhelmed by the large scope of tasks, or continually face interruptions, diverting our efforts and interests on the task at hand.Delegating is critical to business enterprise success and personal balance.Delegating is a high payoff activity, increasing productivity for yourself, your company, and those around you.

    John,I just hired my first VA, and it is such a relief! I advise my clients to determine what they’re good at, and do only that – delegate the rest. Until now, I didn’t walk the talk. It’s the best decision I have made in a long time. We don’t have to be good at everything, we just have to be good at delegating things we’re not good at, and surrounding ourselves with people who have talent that we don’t have.Thanks for this post!Coach Charrise

The people I have shown this to have always found it helpful.
