- You have 949748373848 tasks.
- "I can't delegate!" you tell your bad self.
- I can do this much cheaper!
- I can do this much better!
So, you take forever-and-forever-and-forever-and-forever to work through your tasks; before you know it, you get too old and die.
What to Delegate?
Newton's Law of Motion. The toughest part in completing tasks is starting on those tasks.
Once you have Version 0.1, Version 0.2 gets easier to complete; Version 0.3 gets even easier; etc.
- List your tasks.
- Delegate the list.
- Get Version 0.1 of every task on the list DONE.
Sure, the Version 0.1s might suck if you don't have the $ to hire rock stars, but you'll have a string of Version 0.1s done, which you can then improve/improve/improve/improve, and over time, make them less-suck-less-suck-less-suck.
Delegating the completion of Version 0.1s helps you remove the psychological barriers that prevent you from starting on your long list of tasks.
Before you know it, BAM: SO MANY THINGS DONE HI FIVE.
