It takes time to delegate properly. Time you don’t have. However, if you never take time to invest in others, no one but you will ever have the time or knowledge to know what to do. You will always be able to do the task better and faster than the other person that you did not train. Teaching someone else may take more time in the beginning, but ultimately it will save time. Others will be able to do this task in the future. They will be ready for more responsibility. Every task that you believe you cannot delegate, limits your potential for assuming additional responsibility. It is easy to fall into this trap.
