Time to think

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

20160416_112001Talking to a client the other day about prioritising work and giving yourself time to think about planning ahead, the immediate comment was. ” I would like to, but I don’t have the time to think”. I was then shown several piles of papers and files to highlight the problem.

The complaint is common, the solution is not. In this particular case it revolves around delegation. There are major advantages in delegating to others, but we must also realise that in the short term, the person we delegate to, will need support and may not action the task as we would have done or it may not initially be quite correct. We will need to help them whilst accepting the responsibility for the task. It takes time and often we think that it would be better and quicker if we’d not delegated. Just think it through, over time, how we can consentrate more on building the business, knowing someone is now  looking after the task that we used to do.

It’s worth spending time supporting others with the tasks you are delegating, knowing how much of your time it will release. That time can then be used to think and plan for the future. Delegation; difficult to do, but with enormous rewards.
