people will ask you what you think they should do when carrying out a certain

always ask 'What do you think you should do?' Most of the time they already have
a sensible answer but just lack the confidence to put it into practice.
is a great mistake to think that you can delegate any task that takes your fancy,
possibly because you do not feel like doing it or because you have to keep someone
busy... Nor can you delegate work which you find difficult. If you have problems,
it is unlikely that other people will do any better than you.
