Benefits of habit “Delegate your tasks”

First step:

Delegate 1 task today


1. Today, delegate 1 task to a relevant colleague. Do this every day for 1 week.
2. Next week, delegate 2 relevant tasks.
3. Keep increasing, until you feel you have appropriate amount of tasks in your list.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. Always go through the task list and delegate them at the same time of day. We recommend early mornings.
✓ Trigger your mind. Have the calendar or the task list be the first thing that pops up on your screen. That way you will always know your first task of the day – delegation.
✓ Let the app help. Set a reminder to ring it’s time to delegate. Also, it’s helpful to use the calendar of the app to mark out days you missed your delegation. It’s the best way to track your progress.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone a full month of successfully delegating tasks each day, reward yourself by getting a new, quality planner. You’re a delegating person now, time to show it off.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Information. Before you send a task to someone, first know everything there is to know about that task. How important it is. Who can do it best. How long it would approximately or precisely take. What should be the end result of the task. List this information about the task to its executor as well. Share information relevant to the task as much as possible.
✓ Check in. Once you’ve given the task out and its deadline, check in regularly (but not to the point of annoyance) on its progress. The free time you have should be used for management and especially if you feel it’s taking too long to finish that task.
✓ Use tools. The are many great CRMs (i.e. Customer Resource Management) and other task management tools and some of them are free. Use tools to track your time and task stats to achieve top productivity.
