A Time to Never Delegate
I have an important principle for your career; an original insight from TheHackerCIO:
Everyone always stresses the importance of learning to delegate. But it's equally as important to know when NOT to delegate.
Never delegate if you fear you can't do something. Keep the responsibility; own the problem even if you seek out help to accomplish the task. Yes, this pushes you out of your comfort zone, but that's not a problem. In fact, that's the benefit!
If you delegate from fear, you will avoid all of the learning. And today, continual learning is the number one issue. For everyone.
