"Delegate it to the manager. You have this really good staff that will take care of everything for you. You just have to delegate it — and trust it." ---Abraham Excerpted from the workshop: St. Louis, MO on July 18, 2000
This is such an important concept. We try to do everything by ourselves and that's not the way to operate. It puts way too much stress on our mind and our body.
When you feel overwhelmed:
- Write down on a sheet of paper all the things you have to do.
- Then prioritize them all based on what absolutely has to be done today, what can be done at at time other than today. Use a numbering or a letter system to identify the ones that have to be done today.
- Then really scrutinize the list and identify those items that only you can do.
- After that, take those items that could be done by someone (or something) else and move them to the other side of the sheet of paper.
These are the things you're going to turn over to the Universal Manager. You forget that there is this power out there that can do all things for us. And if nothing else, can help us accomplish what we feel MUST be done by us.
Let this manager help you out. All you have to do is ask. It's funny how we forget this and struggle along in our own misguided way often. If you ask "Show me the way" - you'll be amazed at what answers and ideas come to you.
There is no need for you to ever be overwhelmed once you realize this!
Try it this week. See what jobs you can give to the Universal Manager. You'll be surprised and I think very happy too.
