How To Focus On What You Do Best And Maximize Your Impact

Lourita Stofberg – Founder, AdminAssist

The Art of Delegation Part 1

Does this sound familiar? You talk to your clients for 8 hours straight; yet when you have to write the ‘About Us’ section for your website, you’re at a loss for words? Or you devise excellent strategies for your business’s future, but when you have to capture the past month’s financial data you feel absolutely drained?

 

The Purpose of Delegation

“To enable you to focus on what you do best in order to maximize your impact“ Michael Hyatt, author and speaker on Intentional Leadership

There are certain jobs that you simply enjoy and excel in more than others. And some jobs that just tap your energy to no end. The truth is we all do certain things well and others things not so well. It’s like your grandma said, ”Jack of all trades, master of none.”

If you want to: 

  • Be happier
  • Be more productive
  • Deliver quality work
  • Increase your impact

Then you have to ensure you are doing those tasks that energize and excite you. This is called operating in your ‘strengths zone’.  When you function in your strength zone you will be more productive and deliver better quality work and consequently you will have maximum impact in your business, your community, the world…

 

Why delegate?

Delegation allows you to focus on what you’re good at and someone else to take care of the things you’re not so good at. It allows you to spend the majority of your time in your strength zone. In reality you are increasing your impact, by letting go, by letting others help you.

If you think about it, NOT delegating is NOT an option. It’s simply not sustainable! Our resources are finite. We don’t have unlimited time and unlimited energy and the sooner we embrace this fact and work around it, the better off we’ll be.

It is true that no-one can do your job as well as you do. I am confirming your suspicion! But, it’s like Action coach, Michael Andrews always says, “No-one can do your job as well as you do. But two people’s 80% is still better than your 100%.”
