delegating

My theme this week is delegating.

I believe many of us get stuck trying to “do it all”. This can be extremely tiring and can put us in a place of seemingly never having enough time. When I get in this space, I find myself always saying “there are not enough hours in the day”.

Why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we try to take on the whole world when there are amazing people surrounding us every day who can and want to help? Sometimes we don’t trust others to do the task as well as we could or the same way we would.

What I have found is that when you trust someone to do some of the things you find hard to give up, it is amazing what can happen! The person might even surprise you and find an even better way of doing things and things can dramatically improve.

Bottom line is, even if it seems like there is no one there to help, there usually is. A little out of the box thinking is usually all that is needed to find a solution.

Next time you find yourself thinking there are not enough hours in the day, I challenge you to seek out help, do a bit of delegating. We are all in this thing called life together and you might be surprised how many people are there for you and want to help.

Wishing you a week of success!
