Even an academic can delegate quite a few things to free herself up for research and intellectual growth.
There is a mountain of empty verbiage on our professional websites, but never any good, practical advice of the kind I routinely get on Inc.com. One such piece of advice is to find 3 tasks I can delegate each week. It’s 7:30 am on Monday, and I already found 2 out of 3.
One can also delegate very well at home, by the way.
