James Malinchak Do Not Worry About The Small Stuff Delegate It

By Rubin Price

Having been in business for myself for many years, I have come to understand that the most essential thing I have done for myself would be to delegate the small stuff. Obviously, you want some control. However, control does not necessarily mean overseeing each and every little detail. Control implies that you provide the directions and guidance for overall expectations then let it go. Then, employees and vendors could step up to accomplish what needs accomplished and do their jobs with your best interest in mind.

Think about the time you waste everyday doing small things like posting social media, uploading photos to your harddrive, labeling photos from events, entering cards in to the computer, and reading through email. Then, consider how much your time is worth! When you realize how much cash you're wasting by doing every one of these menial tasks yourself, you will start delegating it to anyone you could pay someone less than $100 bucks to do it for you.

You could make a lot happen for the company to spend your time writing books, following up with clients, creating content, holding boot camps, etc. Let somebody else run the charge card processing for you. Allow someone else edit and publish the book. Let someone else run the bootcamp. Your job is to pull in business towards the company. That's where the phrase 'work on your business as opposed to in your business' appears.

You can't continue to keep at the pace you're going whilst doing what you are doing. You have to manage your time as well as your circumstances. Better yet, get an executive assistant and/or virtual assistant to assist you with managing your time as well as your circumstances. By having someone set appointments, arrange telephone calls, and place needed work in an order you are free to continue to work on priority issues. Furthermore, priority should be conditions or clients that deliver profit.

You don't mean to be rude, but you started a business to make money, not give your time away at no cost as if you are a charity. For that reason, you have to manage your time as well as delegate the nonproductive essential material to another person. In addition, if you have a lot of time wasters in your life or your employee's life, then cut them out, too. For instance, junk email. Email is a huge timewaster. My executive assistant Cindy has to delete a lot of uneventful email every day.

While I delegate all that email stuff to her, I don't want to pay her to read junk mail every day either. Therefore, I informed her to opt out of everything she can that we get spammed into from clients, vendors, friends, etc. We can't carry on and get all that email from thousands of contacts we've got and have any work done at all. I figure if they would like to get a hold of me they'll call me or send me something tangible in the mail. That's how you will guard your time.

Nonetheless, even delegating somebody to open up the mail can be quite a huge time saver. By the time, I would open each and every envelope and separate the mail into piles of importance and value, I'd be wasting more of my time. Better to have someone else sort and purge so that when it's time for me to address the problems at hand, I am able to do all of it at once and cross the job off my list. It's like rapid fire at this point. You start with the oldest and proceed. If it needs addressed by phone, email response, or package, it's written, arranged, and sent out, or I give them a call. Also, my responses are arranged. Evidently, I write my very own thank you letters, but, sending out packages or follow up emails could be delegated to somebody else. Although, I am going to admit, I enjoy addressing the packages with a personal note before they go out because I would like to maintain that personal touch. That personal touch is really important to me.
