We are told by the experts that one of the characteristics of great leaders is that they maximize their time by relentlessly focusing only on those things that only they can do and delegating the other tasks to others.
I get that, but one word of caution…
There is a vast difference between doing what only you can do and doing only what you want to do.
Never underestimate you ability to be selfish and self-centered.
And don’t confuse “what only you can do” with big, important, corner-office-with-a-view executive decisions.
Most of the “what only you can do” tasks involve giving of yourself and they are usually menial tasks like personally answering an email with a heart-felt response instead of foisting it off on your secretary.
The ONE THING for today: There is a vast difference between doing what only you can do and doing only what you want to do.
