I like to do things myself. I like to learn the mechanics of a task, learn it
and then implement it. However; this habit of mine has resulted in many small
projects never getting done. I keep postponing stuff for ‘when I have the time’
and that time never comes.

Finally I decided to try my own medicine and started outsourcing even those
smaller tasks. I have been outsourcing for a while now but they have mostly been
project oriented bigger tasks. Now I have started outsourcing even smaller tasks
and as a result, my To Do List is getting shorter – at least for now. I know
very soon other tasks will take their place but I am making progress on those
smaller tasks. For example, a couple of weeks back I started implementing the facebook plugin that displays your blog posts on your facebook page. Somewhere I made a mistake and it never got fully implemented. I added it to my To Do list and got busy with other things.

Last night I had an idea. Why not post the task on one of the outsourcing
portals and let’s see if someone is willing to take on such a small task. I woke
up this morning with five proposals, I picked one and within the hour, the job
was done.

Three cheers for outsourcing !!!. No task is too small.
