How to delegate ... part one
Before you can delegate properly, you need to know what you want done.
This can be tricky and time-consuming. It's a good reason not to delegate at all. And then you remember working till 11pm on Friday nights, knowing you need to be up at 6 on Saturday, just to get your admin done.
You need to take the time to do this.
Grab a piece of paper, or a fresh page in your note taking app.
And just write down how to do a task.
I often find it useful to start at the end and work backwards.
Test the XK71
Wipe off any marks and debris
Seal the cover
Screw the XK71 into place
Unscrew the old component
Remove the cover
Use a small knife to loosen the cover
You need to do this for everything you want to delegate. It gets more complex when there are decisions to be made. I never said it was easy. But it will make your life better.
Take action: Think of two things that you would rather someone else was doing, and write out a procedure for each. Give yourself no more than ten minutes per procedure to write it out.
