If you are really skilled at doing something you probably feel you should do all the work that needs that skill. Even when you have lots of other things to do and, as a result, end up being completely overloaded.

If this happens, chances are good you haven't fully realised yet just how important speed of delivery has become in our modern world.

So, while you think you might be doing everybody a favour, you might actually cause everything to slow down ... and team-performance suffers.

In this Business Agility Daily I share an epiphany I had about 20 years ago.

Spending upwards of 5h producing each high quality episode sadly turned out to be unsustainable for us and we have put this series on ice for now.

You can still find links to all previous 65 episodes here or join the conversation on the eXuviate Network.
