Being on top of things makes you feel calm. When you slip up and are back peddling you feel in disarray.
What then is the best way to always be on top?
Eliminate unnecessary activities, delegate effectively then execute efficiently!
There are a lot of things we do that need not be done. They add very little value to our overall goals. Eliminate them!
After eliminating unnecessary activities, delegate things on your plate that you can delegate to someone junior in your team. This will allow you to focus on the few very important do’s – things that only you can do.
Then what is left on your plate execute promptly.
