Save time by teaching people things they are doing wrong that slow you down. Teach them correctly so no further adjustments need to be made.
Give others authority
Give other authority to make decisions for you, but make sure to give them guidelines on how to do so. Reducing your pile of decisions and leaving you to monitor their work instead.
