One of the most powerful skills you can develop as an innovator is to know when to do something yourself or find someone else more competent to complete the task. There is constant tension between what resources you currently have and what others on your team can do for you.

Sometimes this team can be others within your organization and sometimes outside vendors.

In business, decide what your time is worth and when you are most effective, and then start to delegate those tasks and projects that others can do for you.   No matter your station in life, don’t try to wear every hat life has to offer.

You’ll find yourself overwhelmed, ineffective, and frustrated. Find others that you can align to your vision and create momentum by focusing on what you do best and learn to trust that others can increase your speed and effectiveness.
