No one else can do what God wants you to do as effectively as you can do it. Redeeming the time means determining exactly what it is God wants us to do and then doing it with all our might.
To accomplish that it may be necessary to delegate certain tasks to others. However, there will always be those few core activities which God wants you and only you to handle. These usually involve relationships with other people. An example might be parenting.
Unfortunately today many Christian parents have overdelegated the training and care of their children in order to pursue activities which give them greater short term pleasure. This type of delegation brings short term freedom from responsibility but with a price tag of long term frustration and regret.
Not delegating away what God calls you to do yourself is part of redeeming the time.
