Key Takeaways:

“The classic that I hear from people who are trying to delegate is, “You know what, it took them four hours, it should have only taken one, it’s quicker to do it myself”. You have to allow this person time to not just learn your thing but to learn to think how you do it because it’s your baby, you know how to do it. So it’s just this whole process of people don’t want to spend the time to delegate effectively”

“You need to look at the business from the top down and identify what problems on a grander scale are you trying to solve, and then look at whether the tool that you’re choosing is solving for the business that’s in 2, 3, 4 years time from now? Or is it like a band-aid that you’re putting over a problem that you have today? That’s why people end up with too many tools because they’re band-aiding everything up”
