Delegating to Strengths

Delegating to Strengths

Let’s talk about weight training. My son Joe has been in weight training for two years now. This is one hour per day spent in a fully equipped gym. I started working out with Joe this January. I do this about a forty-five minutes every day with our home weight set. When we started, Joe could bench about 100 pounds. He is now around 150. I¬†finally hit 100¬†pounds. He has the advantage of working out twice as much as me on a given week and having a eighteen month head start.

No matter how good of a coach Joe is, no matter how inspiring his speech or actions, there is no way he could delegate me lifting 150 pounds. I just do not have the physical strength at this point. Shifting gears to mental strength, there are some tasks that require years of experience and practice to execute. These I need to do rather than delegate. The trick is in determining which tasks these are.
