- The toil you know is more comfortable than the toil you don’t. We enjoy what we’re good at, so letting it go is asking for discomfort.
- Leading others toward your toil takes time you could have spent doing it yourself. Yet leading others forward is what helps your company grow.
- What comes next is even harder. Now what? It’s time to draw a new map, rather than following your old one. That one’s not yours anymore.
