  • Cal Newport mentioned in his book “Deep Work” that if it takes less than a week to train someone to do a certain function, then you should not be doing it. You should be concentrating your function on the complex stuff which has high-value output.
  • For Accounting and Financial Duties, you should start by outsourcing a bookkeeper.
  • The nitty gritty of Marketing is a very tedious task so therefore it should be outsourced to people who can do it as efficiently as you.
  • In terms of Recruitment, it should still be the owner who should have the final say in terms of who gets hired or not but the actual process of screening administering and evaluating exams should be outsourced.
  • If you’re into mass producing the content of your website, then you should consider outsourcing it, but of course, you still need to be selective about the content that goes into your website.
  • For Graphic Designing and IT, it doesn’t mean that if you’re outsourcing it, you wouldn’t want to learn the basics of running a website. It’s about getting the right people for a certain job and getting it done much faster.
  • The administrative tasks of Legal processes can also be outsourced.


Key Points

  • If a certain task takes more than 15 minutes then create a job and pass it on to someone else.
  • Outsource the time-consuming tasks to be able to focus on running your business more efficiently.
  • Consider outsourcing the nitty gritty of your business to people who, not only can work as efficient as you but can work at a much cheaper rate.
