Delegating Tasks – The Key To Ultimate Time Management

Sometimes the overwhelming schedules we create for ourselves can be more easily managed by delegating tasks. We are all busy and have things to do. Visiting friends and family, extracurricular activities, work, school, the list goes on. With that being said, time management is an important part of all our lives. This, of course, is much easier said than done.

Relinquishing Control

There is so much you need to be aware of and do, it can be overwhelming. It is much easier to do something yourself than it is to rely on somebody else to do it for you. But this is a disservice to you and to others. Sometimes it’s hard to relinquish control to others, but if you don’t, you will never have your “me time”, and others around you will never learn to do to do things for themselves.

Learn From Someone

Being a perfectionist myself, I found that delegating tasks was something that needed to be taught to me. If you’ve ever managed a business, I’m positive you know what I’m talking about. At one time I managed a business that was open 9am-2am daily. I was working 60-70 hours a week because I felt that I had to do EVERYTHING! It wasn’t until my District Manager taught me to delegate that I started to see a portion of my life come back.

How To Start Delegating Tasks

Here’s what I suggest, start small. It can be in your personal life or your work life. Teach somebody how to do something. For example, I have taught my daughter how to feed our dogs (not hard right?). But now that it is a shared responsibility for us, if I’m in the middle of making dinner and can’t drop what I’m doing, I ask her to feed the dogs.

The same rule applies for work. It doesn’t have to be huge to start, but let’s say there is a report that needs to be run nightly, it’s pretty easy to run, not a lot of chance for error, and easily taught. Find somebody you trust and teach them how to do it. Again these are small things. You aren’t making yourself any less important in the grand scheme of things. But each time you delegate, you get a little piece of time you were spending on that task to spend on yourself.

So let’s say you pick two tasks out of your day you can delegate to somebody else and all of sudden it frees up a half hour of your time. I’d call that a win. The more you see it work, the more you’ll want to delegate.
