Delegating Your Decision-making

When we think of delegation, we often think of getting the ‘doing’ off our plates.

And yes, this is the first and most important thing to delegate.

But it’s not the only thing you can delegate (it shouldn’t be the only thing!)

When navigating the 6 to 7-figure journey, one of the things that can become a burden is the amount of decision-making on your plate.

🧠 Decisions around vision, goals, and strategies

🧠 Decisions around ops and projects

🧠 Decisions around team

🧠 Decisions around money

I could go on… but I won’t (making myself tired just thinking about it!)

As your business grows, more and more decisions must be made daily. 

And if ALL those decisions land on you, you will likely experience decision fatigue.

We only have so much ‘energy in the tank’ to make decisions each day. 

And when the tank runs dry, we either:

a) make poor decisions, or 

b) stop making decisions, period.

That is decision fatigue.

It’s why, at the end of the day, we can’t decide what we want for dinner – and end up having *that* conversation with our partner. 

(“What do you want to eat?… I dunno – what do you want?… I don’t know either – you decide…. Ummmm”)

Perhaps you can relate?

It’s why Steve Jobs wore the same black turtle neck and jeans every day – because he didn’t want to waste a decision on what to wear.

It’s why we mindlessly shop online in the evenings to give our brains a break and then wonder why we bought another thing off Kickstarter that we don’t need. (Or is that just me?)

The truth is – YOU don’t have to be the only one making decisions in your business.

And if you are the only one making decisions in your business, it will start causing problems – especially as you navigate the 6 to 7-figure journey. You will become the decision bottleneck.

Yes, you want to keep the bigger-picture decisions on your plate.

✍️ Your vision for what you are creating and why 

✍️ Business models and new revenue streams.

✍️ How you want to grow your business.

But you should (yes – I said you should) get yourself out of the day-to-day decision-making of how things are being run. 

Decisions around operations, teams, projects, and such that pop up constantly and suck your energy dry… all of those are things that I can help you with as a Certified OBM. 

It’s what I’m trained to do. 

Your business needs you in your zone of genius. 

It needs you to spend your brainpower on the future of your business and serving clients. 

Not caught up in the day-to-day. 

Not so wiped out from all the little things that you can’t even think about the big things. 

If you want to explore what getting these off your plate could look like, schedule a connection call with me so we can chat about it.
