Now, you might be thinking "Yes, I am Wonder Woman"! I do it all! Can you really? Are you really a super hero? Honestly, no offense, but I highly doubt it.
We only have so many hours in a day and we have so many things we want to accomplish in a day. I need to ask you, "Are you running yourself ragged"?. If so, is being "Wonder Woman" really such a great thing?
In my opinion, a "Wonder Woman" is the Queen of delegation. She is the type of woman who has a lot to accomplish but also recognizes that she can't do it alone. She knows that she needs to delegate to others. Whether it's at home, at the office or running errands, delegation is the best tool in the organizing tool box to get it all done.
How do we delegate? This might be difficult for some who have never done it before. It involves trust and imperfection. It's okay to pass off some responsibility to others! It's okay that it will not get done perfectly. The important thing is that whatever it is will be one less thing you need to worry about. That is smart time management, needless to say, a great stress reducer.
You might want to start by making a list of things you want to accomplish that you either don't have time to do or don't like to do.
Next, you want to compile a list of people to delegate certain tasks to. They can be your spouse, your kids, other family members, friends or someone you pay to get the job done.
Then, you match up the task with the appropriate person. Understand that even though it might not be done exactly the way you would do it, it can still get done. You might surprise yourself and find that the person you delegate the task to does an even better job than you would have done. That's okay! You don't need to be insulted; be grateful! Everyone is good at something and some are better at certain things than others. You have your strengths; they have theirs.
