“Work smart, not hard.” We’ve all heard this saying in one way or another. According to Stephen Covey, delegation is one of the most important keys to becoming a high-performer.
We accomplish all that we do through delegation- either to time or to people. If we delegate to time, we think efficiency. If we delegate to other people, we think effectiveness.
Many people refuse to delegate to other people because they feel it takes too much time and effort and they could do the job better themselves. But effectively delegating to others is perhaps the single most powerful high-leverage activity there is.” -Stephen Covey (pg.180)
