11. Trying to do too much

If you’re behind schedule or missing your goals, you’re probably trying to do too much. To be an efficient leader, you must attract, hire, and retain talent that specializes in things you shouldn’t. Hiring an assistant, social media director, salesperson, or bookkeeper can allow you to spend your time on what you do best and will have the highest return on investment. You can also hire leverage at home, such as a nanny, driver, cook, or housekeeper. Take an honest look at how much time you’re spending on your most important tasks. You’ll probably find that you’re doing a lot of things that someone else could be doing. Find that person, and you’ll be amazed at how much more efficient you’ll be! — Shaun Rawls, founder and CEO of Rawls Consulting; built The Rawls Group of Keller Williams to over $4 billion in annual sales; author of the upcoming book “‘F’-It-Less“; connect with Shaun on Facebook and Twitter
