If you’re like me you’re a fairly good person with malice toward none. Until the “none” becomes someone who gets in the way of your work, your responsibilities, your goals, or that which you are committed to. Then “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” comes down!
– Why do you still work with a band mate who constantly holds the group back?
– How can you continue to keep an employee on the payroll, who pollutes the working environment with negativity, and continuously produces unacceptable results?
– What sort of disaster will it take to finally realize that it’s time for you and your partner to “split the sheet?”
– Why do you continuously put up with the pettiness and incompetence of others at such an emotional, physical and monetary cost to you, and your goals?
Truth be told, the time you waste procrastinating, and waiting for them to change, has nothing to do with THEM! It has everything to do with the dread of making a hard choice, the fear of making a wrong one, and the angst of never making one at all.
Reminder: The goal is to work with the most talented people you can find, who are aligned with your vision and committed to the task at hand, not to babysit.
