Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could do everything yourself?
No explanations. No justifications. Everything just the way you want it. Precise vision. One perspective. Single minded focus.
Oh, but …
No creative sparks with white-board ninjas.
No twice as much in half the time.
No two-heads-are-better-than-one to out think the pesky problems.
No wider experience, different expectations, other ways to hurdle, alternative views on the art-of-the-possible. No honed skills and sculpted muscles and battle hardened practices you didn’t know were even a thing.
Other people: not different-bad, just different-different.
When you invite other people into the circle … they’re friends with benefits … at the cost of a few explanations and daily attempts at clarity.
If you need help to get it done at all or get it done better, find a way to accept it.
