Setting end tasks
If the task you set is too big you or the person you delegate this task to can start procrastinating. No wonder. When the task is too general you can neither understand clearly what you should do exactly, nor estimate reasonable time for doing it. To escape procrastination you should break the task down to as many small tasks as you can.
This is extremely important when you delegate the task. Your employee may not know some aspects of task or the preferred workflow for this task, while you know what should be done and in which order. It helps to avoid some unexpected results and save the time we usually spend on thinking what to do next at each stage of the task.
