Delegating In A Time Management System

“No man is an island.” There might be some people who disagree with this saying, thinking that they can live happily by themselves and there’s no need for anybody else’s help.
While some may adopt the philosophy “If you want to do it right, you got to do it yourself,” we still need other people’s 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 don’t enjoy? You only live once, so make the most of it.
What are the things you can delegate to others?
  1. Customer support
  2. Cleaning the house
  3. Grocery shopping
  4. Bathing your pets
  5. Cooking
  6. Fixing broken tools and equipment
  7. Mowing the lawn
  8. Wedding arrangements
  9. Gift-wrapping
  10. Catering
  11. Ghostwriting
  12. Web designing

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 it’s 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 don’t enjoy. I believe you’ll 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.


  1. I guess it all comes down to what program you are already involved in and the similarity of other ones and connections through the company.

  2. This kinda makes you think about your life... But No money = no hanging out with friends, no social life, and such. I have to keep doing all this.

  3. Defiantly true, taking a class kinda like this at uni right now.
