If you are like most of the people – then it is difficult to trust people with your business. When you start out – you do most of the things and slowly you start to hire. But you keep the important decision making power with you.
Slowly, you start to burn out because there is limited time available to each of us. But you want to own your business. And it can’t be done without your crucial input.
Each day brings in a new set of challenges – you feel like in a chaotic situation where you pull out your hair. There seems to be no way – no solution and the world around you seems falling.
Among all these, there seems hope – your competitors and well established business are doing fine – what’s their secret?
If you need your business to grow then you need to delegate with trust. Of course, you need to keep doing things at which you are best at – but others in which you are good or bad – you have to delegate them.
This is the only way to free up your time and give direction to your business – also delegation helps in scaling.
It is all fun to be the one in charge all the time – chasing clients, asking for scheduling and doing the work. But in the long run – you will end up with limited money because you can’t get 10 clients to work with. Once, you delegate the stuff to others – you will end up with more clients and money.
If you want to grow then delegation is the way to go.
Along the same lines of delegations is the use of assistant – you can try to become the best in the world – but if you are still busy in doing the trivial things then your focus will be crushed.
Enter assistant – same like delegation but something to start on personal front. Assign and forget about them.
Using assistant can make your life grow to an exponential level – can survive without them, yes. But if you can afford and want to level up then assistants are the way to go – fast.
Similarly, floating pads in swimming pool are the assistant you might need to level up. Can you go alone without them? Yes, but it will help you tremendously if you use the floating pads to test the waters.
But the contrast – in business life, you need assistants for life. While in swimming you use the floating pads as assistant to level up and then you can drop them – available to use later if you need them.
