I have a confession to make. I’m horrible at delegating, simply because I feel like I’m always the best one to get the job done, the right way. Or at least, the way I want it done. But since I can’t be cloned (yet), and there’s only 24 hours in a day, I had to figure out how to trust others so that all our combined efforts would make us better.
Have you ever noticed in sports, when a player is in a “contract year,” meaning he'll be a free agent on the open market for the following season, they tend to perform extremely well or crumble under the pressure? The reason is because the athlete knows that his or her performance will dictate their value on the open market and how much their next contract will be worth.
