Time Management Tips And Techniques

The Art of Delegation

No man is an island. There might be some people who disagree with this saying, thinking that they can live happily by themselves and theres no need for anybody elses help.

While some may adopt the philosophy If you want to do it right, you got to do it yourself, we still need other peoples help sooner or later. And when it comes to effective time management, delegating or assigning tasks to others is a must.

You might think that doing it all yourself would make you a hero. Nope, it would only eat up a lot more of your time time you could spend in doing other things that could make you feel more satisfied or accomplished. Also, who would like to do things they dont enjoy? You only live once, so make the most of it.

There are many unemployed people who would be willing to do the jobs for you, if the price is right. But how do you determine if its really worth it to hire someone else in exchange for your hard-earned money?

Write down the more enjoyable or more satisfying things that you can do, as a result of not engaging in tasks you dont enjoy. I believe youll live a more fulfilling life by shedding out a few dollars in exchange for some valuable free time. After all, money can be replaced anytime, but lost time can never be reclaimed.
