How to “Let It Go” and Delegate Like a Pro!
Disney’s Frozen has been a worldwide hit and the theme song of the movie “Let It Go” has sold over 1 million units already. You want to know why that song has become such a success? It’s inspiring that’s why. It inspires people TO LET THINGS GO, all the issues and stresses in their lives and just live for once. Let go of it all and let people help you. I thought I would take the opportunity to use the message behind Frozen to talk about how to let go and let someone else help you to be successful.
As an entrepreneur people expect a lot from you right? You feel like you have to do everything yourself because it has to be perfect and done properly, right?.
Sometimes in life you have to say screw it and hand it over to someone who can do it for you to allow you to open up time to do the really important things in business, the things that are going to make you the big money.
The idea behind the song “Let It Go” is that your life won’t fall apart if you just let go of the fear and control associated with delegating work to an employee or to a Virtual Assistant. It’s a difficult thing to do, don’t get me wrong, it’s not easy to delegate when you have been the one running the show this whole time.
Delegation is a skill that is crucial to the success of ANY business. Not only a successful business but a healthy life. There is no way one person can do everything involved in running a business and if you are then you are risking becoming overstressed and developing health problems.
Take a deep breath! Put your fingertips together and chant this….just kidding. But really take a deep breath! This is good news, this is the way to stay sane and happy! Admit you can’t do it all.
So how do you start? It’s easy!
Start by delegating tasks you hate doing. Those mundane non life altering tasks that just seem to get in the way. Delegate tasks that are not responsible for bringing in the bucks. Bookkeeping, accounting, social media and web maintenance are all good examples of tasks you don’t need to be doing. Delegate enough things and it will free up plenty of time to do more productive work. If you have a lot of business solutions that need to be managed then hire an Executive Assistant just get yourself some help.
Delegating work doesn’t even have to be business related. You need to book tickets for an upcoming vacation, then delegate it and get back to living your life.
