Nugget 14: “Think of your actions as if they were a project risk”
When you ask for an admin or non deliverable based task to be done, try and think of it as if it had come from an external party, would you still do it? or are you just banking on the fact that it’s Your team to make sure it gets done?. The invisible admin tasks that come from internal team management chew up far more time than you would believe, treat all internal and external task as if they were project risks, you will find it really cuts down on the things you ask for.
