  • Do – Determine from the list the things you think are most important to accomplish, and are things you should do yourself. Delegate – Remember that there are many people with skills, experience, and motivation to carry out a wide variety of tasks. Understands that real leaders do not try to accomplish everything themselves and recognizes that some things are better handled by others. Delegating not only frees up your time for other things, it ensures that resources are used wisely and that others who want to help are motivated and involved. Delay until another time – Some things can wait. The danger is delaying too many things until deadlines are near. The best policy here is to consider when things are due, how long it will take to accomplish them, and what your current workload will allow. It makes sense to delay things that are not due when you are “overburdened” and to accomplish them ahead of time when you can. Delete – If you recognize that some of your goals are not achievable or realistic, or that they are just not important, eliminate them.

    24. 24. Better Managers Think Positive A young lady looked in the mirror one morning. She had three remaining hairs on her head, and being a positive soul, she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today.“ So she braided her three hairs, and she had a great day. Some days later, looking in the mirror one morning, she saw that she had only two hairs remaining. "Hmm, two hairs... I fancy a centre parting today." She duly parted her two hairs, and as ever, she had a great day. A week or so later, she saw that she had just one hair left on her head. "One hair huh...," she mused, "I know a pony-tail will be perfect." And again she had a great day. The next morning she looked in the mirror. She was completely bald. “ Finally bald huh," she said to herself, "How wonderful! I won't have to waste time doing my hair any more.” It is important for us to always think positive. mnRAJU
