Have you ever wondered why there isn't enough time in the day? From aircraft component procurement, repair orders, aircraft maintenance checks, aircraft parts supplier approval, the list seems to never stop.
There isn't enough time in the day to get everything done by yourself.
It's natural, human and you shouldn't beat yourself up over it. Sometimes I look at my calendar, then my daily task list and want to scream.
I know exactly how you feel, but the solution is right in front of you.
You've probably heard of this term before but we all too often ignore it.

Delegation is a tool you can use to take advantage of focusing on the bigger picture and getting results, rather than the tedious work of buying hundreds of components for an aircraft maintenance check.
You have 100 parts to procure and you'll need to purchase, repair, ship and receive in these 100 parts. You can take on these tasks by yourself, completing each and every step from start to finish (I know it already sounds stressful).
Or you can delegate these tasks to a trusted partner, like your aircraft parts supplier. They can do everything. You just have to sit back and receive the items in as they arrive.
They key here is trusted partner
Utilizing this concept of delegation allows you to focus on other areas. Think about how much time it costs you to follow-up and manage 100 purchase orders.
The costs get daunting don't they?
Why Would You Ever Choose Delegation?
Delegation gives you the freedom to focus your skill sets in more areas. You don't have to drown in daily tasks. The more tasks you have the more likely something will get overlooked.
Being able to delegate tasks makes you more efficient and the more efficient you are the more money you'll save.
And just between you and me, the more time you have for yourself the less stressed you'll be.
How To Start Delegating With Your Aircraft Parts Supplier
This step is simple.
Call, email and / or Skype your aircraft parts supplier and tell them that you would like to discuss delegating the component procurement process.
State what you're looking for, your needs and how you expect things to be done.
As projects get underway keep an open line of communication so they know exactly what you want. As time passes you will begin to feel the weight lifted off your shoulders and put directly on theirs.
Which is a good thing!
Delegating can be scary at first. Whether you're delegating tasks to an aircraft parts supplier, or a colleague, it will feel odd at first. However, I speak from experience when I say delegating is a HUGE relief.
You can't expect to do everything. It's not fair to you. If there are people who can help, use them. They just may have more experience in a given area and may be better for the task, whatever it may be.
