The Hardest Thing

Sometimes giving up projects and tasks — even ones you’re not super fond of — is the hardest thing to do. But doing that hardest thing is sometimes the best thing to you. Both for your own maturation, but also for the team.

Right now I’m holding a lot of friends back by not letting go of items on my to do list. These I could hand off (easily or not). Those tasks and projects would get done a lot faster and with a more diverse pool of talent. The positives look so good, why don’t we do it? But there’s so much to fear, so much to grip onto.

What don’t we want to give up that we could give up that we should give up?

I love helping companies scale and grow their organizations to delight customers and employees, enabling healthy teams, fast growth, and fewer headaches. Scaling quickly is wrought with potholes and plot twists. When you’re running a company, losing customers, and employees are on their way out, and don’t have your systems running smoothly, then you’ll be at your wits' end. I've been there and hate it.
