I try to visit a Barnes and Nobles at least once a week. I'll head to the cafe to grab a coffee and then roam the store. I noticed Tim Ferris' 4 Hour Work Week book so I decided to skim through it.
I had to take a picture of the workflow below because I realized SO many leaders have this problem: they want to do everything.
I believe a common leadership mistake is that leaders are afraid of asking for help. I'm also a believer that leaders do things that they don't necessarily need to do. I'm guilty of both of them as well, don't worry.
The best leaders understand that you have to work smarter, not harder. What tasks can you distribute to other people? What tasks can you do on your own? The benefit of distribution is that other people feel like they are part of the overall success now which will enhance intrinsic motivation & creativity.
