control or delegate

We have a project.

Within that project there are tasks. Things that need to be done. Things that need to be coordinated. Things that need to be organised.

And this presents us with choices.

Do you handle everything yourself? Or do you delegate some responsibility?

Do you have one person doing all the work? Or do you find exactly the right person for each individual job?

These choices exist on a spectrum. And each different approach isn’t necessarily right or wrong. Each has its advantages and disadvantages.

We just have to make sure we’re considering all the options, not simply doing what we’ve always done or choosing whatever seems to make things easiest for us in the short term.

We have to look at the bigger picture.

And take time to reflect when the project is over, on what worked and what didn’t.

Before we move on to the next one.
