Give it up. Recognise and admit to yourself that you can’t do everything all the time. Let go of needing to be in complete control. Acknowledge that you will benefit from other people’s help and give them the opportunity to shine in the process. Learn to delegate; and then learn to be comfortable with delegating. You don’t need to delegate responsibility if you choose not to, but you can at least delegate tasks and functions to others.
