It’s just a hunch but … my guess is … you don’t know what you’re doing.

Hmm. That’s too strong.

What I mean is … sometimes … you don’t know exactly how to do what you’re trying to do because you’ve never done it before, and, quite often, nor has anyone else.

Which is the only way the world changes.

So, like the rest of us, you’re making it up as you go along.

And that’s OK.

(We’re good, right?)

Except when you try to bluster your way though in a …who do you think you are to question me about my thing, don’t you know who I am? … kind of a way.

Much smarter: I know we’ve never done this before but this is what I’m thinking, who can think of a way to improve it? How’s the approach, the concept, the specifics? Let’s find a better way?

Skippy strategy: Get over yourself ego, work together with your team.
