As a business owner, you only have so many hours in your day. Even the best leaders have to ask themselves “is this the best use of my time?” You can focus on what you do well and only you can do, or you can waste time doing things that someone else could do faster and better, and sometimes, even cheaper.

Use Your Strengths for Big Results

When leaders focus on their strengths, they can leverage those efforts into bigger things. You’ll get a better outcome. Your strengths are what you do well, so you know how to use those elements to get results. You may not even like what you’re doing, but you know you’re good at it. This lets you get through the job quickly and deliberately.

Deal With Your Weaknesses for Maximum Results

Although in many cases, we’re told to strengthen weaknesses, in business, leaders have other options. If you’re not good at bookkeeping, and you dislike it, why spend hours trying to change your mind? Make sure you know the basics, get someone to do the bookkeeping for you and manage it. Whether you outsource, delegate or get a partner to balance you out, learn how to manage your weaknesses in business and move forward.

Leaders Need to Delegate

Many of the best leaders have learned not to micromanage their to-do list. Good leaders know that they can’t do everything and do it well. They need help. Outsource or delegate tasks that aren’t related to your core competency. This frees you up to focus on what you do well. You’ll be happier when you aren’t bogged down with tasks that you procrastinate or just take a lot of your time. Leaders who learn to delegate are more effective because they have a better work-life balance.
