If you can’t do it yourself or don’t want to take the time, delegate it to someone you trust to accomplish the task.
(The Success Principles; J. Canfield)

Would you be so kind as to tell me how you read it:

1) delegate it to [someone you trust] to accomplish the task;
2) delegate it to someone you [trust to accomplish the task].

Thanks.

    I would have to read it as (2). If you "delegate it to someone you trust", I think the phrase "to accomplish the task" is left unconnected.
