Whatever industry you’re in, let your co-workers do their job.
OK, that sounds like pretty humdrum advice, but you wouldn’t believe how many companies stagnate because control-hungry employees won’t let their co-workers do what they specialize in.
Let’s say you’re the computer guy and you did all the tech work necessary to launch a business and attract customers. We can’t tell you how many techies told us their businesses failed because they wouldn’t let their marketing people do their job. They’d hoard responsibilities just to get some control over what they established.
This led only to ruin. This is why you have experts working alongside you: so you can focus on getting done what you do best.
Let go. The more you try to control everything, the more it slips through your fingers. AKA the more you resist, the more it persists.
Just let the experts do their job.
