The delegation game

All that is required to be free from the ego is to be aware of it, since awareness and ego are incompatible.*
(Eckhart Tolle)

Defining moments shape our lives, but we don’t have to wait for them to happen.  We can be authors of them.**
(Chip and Dan Heath)

Curiosity can be delegated.  Interest and intent focus, too.

With these go our greater imagination, collaboration, risk-taking, achievement, impact and contributed beauty.

But you’re here, with everything you are and have, and it would be a great shame not to do something with that that you’re unaware of right now, before it’s too late:

‘You don’t need a permit or a blessing or any sort of permission to decide to take your turn.  You only have to open your eyes and look.  And then choose.’

The things that we should leave to others are those they love to do and we don’t.

The things we must never delegate are what we are capable and impassioned to do.
