Admitting Is the First Step, Right?

I'll admit it.  I am a control freak.  It's not that everything needs to be done my way.  It just needs to be done correctly, preferably on my time schedule. 

I've reached a point where I can finally admit I can't do everything by myself.  Oh, it's so hard for me to admit that.  It actually pains me to admit that.  Let's not dwell on this admission too long or I may reconsider.

With new recognition comes a new challenge--delagation.  I have to be okay with other people being responsible.  More importantly, I have to trust that all will be okay in the end.

I took my first steps towards delagation this week.  I passed two tasks to two different individuals. 

In the first case, I kept checking with other people to see if the task had been accomplished.  It did get done eventually, but all the waiting made me anxious!

The second situation was a bit easier for me to handle.  This person sent me text messages looking for my input and actual photos for my approval.  It was quite a relief after my earlier experience.

So much for me releasing my need for control.
