As an entrepreneur, business owner, coach, consultant, creative, or freelancer, you are likely wearing many hats. You are the CEO, CFO, CMO, and HR manager all rolled into one. And while you may wear all those hats out of necessity, it can be detrimental to your productivity.
Here’s why: when you are trying to do everything, you are not focused on any one thing. You are scattered, pulled in different directions, and as a result, not working at your highest potential. This is why it’s so important to delegate and outsource as much as possible. It will free up your time and energy so that you can focus on the tasks that only you can do.
The Benefits of Delegating and Outsourcing
When you delegate or outsource tasks that you don’t need to be doing, it frees up your time so that you can focus on your zone of genius—the things that only you can do. This allows you to work at your highest potential and make the biggest impact. In addition, delegating and outsourcing also have the following benefits:
- You can focus on your strengths: When you delegate or outsource tasks that you aren’t good at or don’t enjoy doing, you can focus on using your strengths to move your business forward.
- You’ll get the job done faster and better: When you delegate or outsource tasks to people who are better equipped to handle them than you are, chances are they’ll get the job done faster and better than you would have.
- You’ll reduce your stress levels: Trying to do everything yourself can be stressful. When you delegate or outsource tasks, you’ll take some of the pressure off yourself and feel more relaxed.
- You’ll have more time for other things: When you delegate or outsource tasks that are taking up a lot of your time, you’ll have more time for the things that matter most to you—like spending time with your family and friends or working on your hobbies.
