Lets face it, half of what comes into your inbox you probably delete without even opening! OR you leave it in there for fear of deleting something important and actually end up missing the true important stuff.

I like to keep an inbox of a rotating 5. Thats right FIVE emails! Here are my tips and tricks on how to clean up that inbox, make sure nothing gets lost, and relieve that inbox stress immediately.

Our TOP 3 tips to clear your bottlenecks around delegation!

1 - Start small, build confidence.  Focus on compartmentalizing larger tasks and projects into small parts to build your own confidence around delegation. Do you want to hand off your calendar scheduling?

 

Don’t get overwhelmed by the big picture of doing so; instead segment it out.  Ask yourself which part of my schedule could be most easily delegated or automated? Perhaps a first small step is to deploy a scheduling tool for your internal team meetings only.  Just this shift alone will help you add framework to your day by creating specific blocks of time you are available to meet, and it takes the back and forth out of when to meet.   Grab the small wins! It still equates to time saved, and you’ll build confidence in this phase.
