Last week we looked at taking responsibility. This week I’d like to take a moment to look at shifting it. There are times when this is the right thing to do and times where it is the weak or wrong thing to do.
Beware of shifty people. They will shove responsibility at you without thinking twice if the shift makes their life easier. At the same, use good perception for the times when others around you, like bosses, are looking to shift some task, duty or role. Those are often the moments of opportunity to grow.
For those of you reading this that hang onto to much responsibility, it might be you that needs to let go of something and shift it to somebody else. Don’t stunt your growth by hanging onto things you have outgrown.
