As busy executives, we aren’t alway honest with ourselves. We want to be great at everything. We have our hands in all the pies. We have all the answers to the problems.

We may lack the inner patience to  to be honest about what we  can and can’t do.

Be mindful of your limitations and be honest with yourself that you don’t know everything and you never will. It takes another level of confidence to say:

“I don’t know how to do this”

Decide what you can be involved in and what you need to let go of.

Learning to let go of taking responsibility to know everything, is empowering and frees the mind to focus on your strengths.

Trying to be seen as wise at everything will make you look less wise at most things.
