Join host Tom Bump and learn about some clear steps to avoiding a "Time Famine" which was defined by Micheal Hyatt " The feeling of having more tasks, than time." 

What are some steps we can take to learn to delegate so we can instead be the leaders God calls us to be and we can help the body of Christ to become what it should be.

Read Eph. 4:11-16 and consider what you are doing on a regular basis to help the body of Christ to be built up?

      Begin with honest prayer, seeking the Lord of the Harvest.

      Create a list of things you're doing and highlight things that drain you, you struggle to get done.

 1.Define. You need to know exactly what you are going to delegate. Don’t be vague.

2. Plan. Write down how you will present this task. List potential concerns and objections
3. Select. Which of your team has the best skills to deliver the results.
4. Explain. Tell the person why the task is important and why they are right for it.
5. Define success. Be clear about what success looks like, if possible with a measurable target.
6. Set limits. Let them know what they are accountable for and where they can get help. Don’t forget that last part. Oftentimes after delegation has started the person working on it runs into a snag and has no idea where to turn to for some help or guidance. Here is one way you separate delegation from dumping.
7. Invite doubt. Many volunteers start excited when delegated to but then feel that expressing doubt about the project or their ability is a sign of weakness. Encourage them to ask questions and assess the project on their own terms. Also, take note of the previous point in number six.
8. Get commitment. Don’t expect immediate agreement. Give them time to think it over. Never rush this stage.
9. Agree. Set milestones and timelines and how you will monitor progress. Get them to suggest as much of this as possible.
10. Recognize and reward. Successful completion of a delegated project or task should mean something. Be clear from the outset how much value you place on it and reflect that in the reward you offer.

Have you ever thought you when you enter the ministry to bring your casket with you? You should! When we enter ministry we often will encounter challenges and if you approach your calling as a life-calling, not just a job,  it can see you through many things. But, When God tells you it's time to move on, what do you do? How do you leave a ministry? Mike has some sage advice for us in this fantastic episode. It's a little long, as I couldn't bring myself to stop recording.
