Delegation is crucial to time management. The ability to efficiently delegate allows you as an online entrepreneur the freedom and flexibility to work on other projects.
To optimize your time, be sure to set a realistic and reachable deadline for any delegated work that you distribute. Make sure that the delegation is fair and balanced and is workable for the person to whom you delegated to.
Always be specific about what you want done when you delegate work so as to avoid any confusion and to make sure that you achieve the desired results necessary.
When delegating, be very clear about the purpose of the work that you are delegating and what kind of results you expect.
Beware of delegating without instructions, as it can cause chaos, confusion and poor work quality.
If you lack the time to give the person complete and explicit instructions, you may want to give the work to a person who can manage with little interaction from you. This will keep you from micro managing and free you up to be more productive.
Always allow the person to whom you delegated to be creative in their work. Simply look for and expect quality results without dictating step-by-step on how the project is to be run. This negates your whole purpose of delegating and can also cause undue stress.
Devise a system to report back to you (either online or via a third party) to receive feedback on the individual’s progress. This keeps you from being constantly interrupted during the day.
