In this world where there are so many things that you must and should and could do, how do we get it all done?
The hard truth is this: we don’t.
We cannot do it all...or at least, we cannot do it all well.
At what point in time do we stop making lists, staying up late, and working more hours before we come to the very healthy realization that we aren’t supposed to do it all--and certainly not supposed to do it all on our own.
Humans are wired for communal living. It's just been within the past 100 years, or so, that we have migrated to taking on the tasks of an entire village in one single household.
It’s time to delegate or bring in a teammate.
Where do you even begin?
- Start with the list of things that you don’t do well, and then add the things that you don’t like to do..and there you have it (it's that simple)! You now hold the list of activities that slow down your productivity and take away from your happiness.
- Use this list to match people who can help you with your problematic tasks, and get your plan together.
You are now free from the pressure of an insurmountable list!
This week, ask for help so that you can focus on what you do best.
