My challenge today was in dealing with my husband. His father passed away earlier this morning, and he’s been processing a wave of emotions all day. My goal is to be there for him and support him through this difficult time. There is only one time ever you will lose a parent. Make sure when that time is for you (if you still have living parents) that your unresolved issues are resolved before it is too late.



I made two new friends at the gym today. Eric and Tiffany. They are both swimmers that I’ve been working out with. Today we had short conversations, where as in the past we just waved and smiled at each other.

My goal is to always be the first one who smiles and waves hello.

I noticed today while getting dressed that my clothes are fitting me better. Having lost 16 pounds on this journey, I feel better about myself too. I am the person who refused to buy “fat clothes” when I packed on the extra menopausal pounds. I just looked like 10lbs stuffed in a 5 lb sack or however the saying goes. LOL.

Delegating Can Help

As content creators, we often overlook delegating as an option for our business. We think no one can do the things we do as well as we can do them ourselves. We also may be short on funds to hire people, so we spend our time doing menial tasks. We major in minor things that don’t move the needle in our business forward.

Delegating tasks offers several benefits, both personally and professionally. Here are some of the key advantages of delegating any of the tasks in our business.

Reduced Workload

Delegating tasks allows you to distribute the workload among team members or colleagues, reducing the amount of work you need to handle on your own. This can help prevent burnout and overwhelm.

Increased Efficiency

Delegating tasks to individuals with the appropriate skills and expertise can often lead to more efficient and faster task completion. This can improve overall productivity.

Focus on High-Value Activities

Delegating routine or less critical tasks frees up your time and energy to focus on high-value activities that require your unique expertise and decision-making abilities. This can lead to better strategic thinking and problem-solving.

Skill Development

Delegation provides opportunities for team members to develop new skills and gain experience. It can be a form of professional development and can help team members grow in their roles.

Delegating Can Enhance Team Morale

When you trust and empower your team members by delegating tasks, it can boost their morale and job satisfaction. They feel valued and more engaged in their work.

Time Management

Delegating helps you manage your time more effectively. You can allocate your time to tasks that align with your strengths and responsibilities, allowing you to be more productive.

Delegating Leads to Better Decision-Making

With a reduced workload, you can make better decisions because you have more time to gather information, analyze options, and consider long-term implications.

Delegating Reduces Stress

Delegating can reduce your stress levels by preventing you from feeling overwhelmed with an excessive workload. This can contribute to improved mental and emotional well-being.

Work-Life Balance

Delegating tasks can help you achieve a better work-life balance by freeing up time for personal life and relaxation. This balance is essential for overall well-being.

Team Collaboration

Delegation fosters collaboration within a team or organization. It encourages communication and cooperation among team members, leading to a more cohesive and productive work environment.


Delegation is crucial for the scalability of organizations. As your team or company grows, you can’t handle everything on your own, so effective delegation becomes essential for sustainable growth.


Delegation empowers team members to take ownership of their work and make decisions within their areas of responsibility. This can lead to increased autonomy and a sense of pride in their contributions.

Conflict Resolution

Delegating tasks that involve conflict or disagreements to a neutral third party can help resolve disputes more effectively and impartially.

While delegation offers numerous benefits, it’s important to delegate wisely by considering the skills, strengths, and interests of your team or family members, providing clear instructions and expectations, and offering support when needed. Effective delegation is a skill that can improve your own effectiveness as a leader and contribute to the success of your team or organization.
