Why you should delegate duties

One technique you can use to prioritize your time is to identify the tasks that you don’t actually need to perform yourself. Many of us are guilty of trying to do everything on our own. It may be because we feel that it would be faster just to do it ourselves than to try to explain how to do it to someone else. Or maybe we are concerned that no one else will do as good a job as we would. However, none of us has endless time and endless energy. If we can delegate tasks to other people, why not do it?

"Three Blind Men and an Elephant"

Blind men and the elephant One day, three blind men happened to meet each other and gossiped a long time about many things. Suddenly one of them recalled, " I heard that an elephant is a queer animal. Too bad we're blind and can't see it."
"Ah, yes, truly too bad we don't have the good fortune to see the strange animal," another one sighed.
The third one, quite annoyed, joined in and said, "See? Forget it! Just to feel it would be great."
"Well, that's true. If only there were some way of touching the elephant, we'd be able to know," they all agreed.

The Scorpion and the Tortoise

A story is told of a scorpion and a tortoise who were facing a swollen river. The scorpion begged the tortoise to carry him across. "I can't take you on my back," the tortoise replied. "You'd sting me."

"Why would I do that?" the scorpion wanted to know.

Profanity

It can be easy to forget that all profanity, rumors and dirty jokes are evil. But we are cautioned by Solomon: "The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate" (v. 13). To love God is to hate evil words.

Talents- do your little with fidelity

"Do not hesitate to work for the Lord because you think you can do but little. Do your little with fidelity; for God will work with your efforts....Your talents will increase as you use them for the Master, and they will be esteemed precious by Him who has bought them with an infinite price. Do not sit down and neglect to do anything, simply because you cannot do some great thing, but do whatever your hands find to do, with thoroughness and energy...." Messages to Young People.
