Turn Your To-Do List Into A Delegation Worksheet

Not sure what to delegate? Try this simple exercise: Make a to-do list of all your regular duties, the tasks you perform every day, week or quarter. Then look at every item and decide if you can delegate it to an employee. Since they're all tasks you've done before, you'll have a good idea of how to instruct someone else to do them. You may find that you'll have to continue doing some tasks yourself. But the overall effect will be to give employees more responsibility and free up more of your own schedule.

I'm pretty sure my parents used this same system when they decided I'd be perfect for snow removal and lawn care.
