“Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do.”
Delegating is not a logical issue; it is an emotional one. Most leaders are attached to an old-school way of thinking called time-management thinking, that is focused on what you do today rather than how it will affect you in the future. In order to adapt to today’s fast-paced world, the best and most effective leaders have shifted to something called “The 30x Rule”.
What is the 30x Rule?
The 30x Rule from Rory Vaden dictates that you, as the leader in your business, should spend 30x the amount of time training someone to do a specific task—exactly as though you were doing it yourself. For example, if a certain process takes you 10 minutes to complete, then you should be able to comfortably train someone for 300 minutes to complete that process, as the 30x rule suggests.
