Insecurities😕

  • I set firm deadlines… that slipped by. I am trying really hard not to do everything myself, but then I feel like I’m being too much of a pushover.
  • I’m worried that if I give the other people I’m working with a list of everything I believe needs to be changed, I’ll frustrate them
  • But if I just change things, then things get out of sync/I may not be empowering them/they may be oblivious to things like inconsistent fonts, grammatical errors etc
  • I started off by listing out what I felt needed to be done. If people didn’t step up because they were working on other things, do I hound them or just let it go, as long as the work gets done?
  • If someone wants to work on something that isn’t of high value to me, do I tell them not to, or encourage them to do what they think is best?
  • What if I’m wrong and the scope, time, etc needs to change?
  • How can I be a joy to work with? Or at least, not make people dislike working with me because I have high expectations, like to meet deadlines, etc?
