Delegation Requires Follow-Up

Entrepreneurs cannot do everything themselves in their companies so they have to assign projects, goals, and objectives, or collectively tasks to various individuals. Delegation of responsibilities is essential for growth.

Do you have a good system of tracking those tasks? If so, that is a step in the right direction. If not, you need to get a system or process that works for you.

But, more importantly, do you follow-up on the assigned tasks? Do you have a system to track the progress on the various items? Do you have a reminder system?

Assigning tasks is not enough. Monitoring the progress on the completion status of these tasks with regular follow-up is crucial. Otherwise you are sending a message to the employees that you are not going to hold them accountable.

While some employees will take the initiative to report on the progress of the assigned tasks, you need to have a system to hold all people accountable.

Follow up is critical when you delegate tasks to others. Otherwise, don’t always expect results.

Do the Right Things!

Executing Things Well

Many people with good ideas keep on dreaming of making it big. But they don’t (or can’t) as they do not put their ideas into practice. Not executing your vision gets you nowhere except in your dreams.

“Vision without execution is a daydream. Execution without vision is a nightmare” – Japanese Proverb.

Entrepreneurs can make their dreams into reality! How?

Taking on any major project begins by breaking it down into smaller tasks. (How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.) First, break down your project (dream) into smaller, discrete, meaningful segments.

Then establish measurable milestones with a realistic timeline – goals! Get your organization committed to these goals and monitor periodically progress towards achieving the established milestones. Disciplined activity towards achieving these goals will eventually lead to fulfilling your Vision.

If one puts realistic and measurable milestones with timelines on dreams, they could become goals for success!
