And of course, with all these multiple personality disorders that I’ve confessed to this week, one of the biggest traps I have to stop myself falling into is the control freak trap. And I expect there’s a lot of people out there that can identify with that. It goes along with the perfectionist trap.
I don’t have the perfectionist trap ’cause I’m a bish, bosh, bash, get it up there and see if it works kind of merchant. But the control freak trap, I do have to really work on because over the years, I’ve learned to trust myself, but I don’t really trust anybody else to do as good a job as me. So that makes it really difficult when you’re hiring team members, or indeed freelancers.
But what I’ve found, to my absolute delight and pleasure, is that most of them are much better than I would ever be at doing the jobs I’m hiring them for. So do feel free to try people out and surprise yourself, they might be better than you. That’d be cool, wouldn’t it?
