Busy, busy, busy! The same is probably true for you as a leader. There is always too little time. Making that urgent marketing plan. Coming up with a new project. Reviewing the quarterly figures thoroughly. Following the latest trends in your field. Searching for an interesting acquisition. That difficult but necessary conversation with an employee....
All tasks where you have added value as a leader but don't get around to because so many daily concerns get in the way. And then you do them at night or
on weekends or worse ... on vacation.
Secretly, you are convinced that you are irreplacable. You do everything faster and better. And sometimes you just find delegating scary because it means you are no longer fully aware of everything.
But what if you are unlucky and temporarily unavailable? How do things proceed then? Entrepreneur Martijn Van der Tuin created a "misability plan" after what he himself called "a lot of entrepreneurial blunders”. His goal: to spend your time on things that are important and not get involved in things your employees can solve themselves.
