Q: Isn’t it easier just to do all these small tasks myself?
A: That’s kind of the cowboy entrepreneur mindset – “I can do it all myself, and I don’t need any help.” I found that that kind of thinking gets you only so far and no further. One of the greatest skills you can have as an entrepreneur is the skill of delegating. It’s a muscle you need to exercise – the more you learn to delegate, the better you get at it.
Even though learning to delegate might seem to take more time, once the tasks have been delegated, you gain back much more time, and are then able to use that new-found time for more important projects.
