"Moses’ father-in-law replied, 'What you are doing is not good.
You and these people who come to you will only wear
yourselves out. The work is too heavy for you;
you cannot handle it alone'" - Exodus 18:17-18.
Moses' father-in-law served as Moses' life coach and consultant when he came to pay a family visit. He observed Moses' work habits and work load and informed Moses that he was a workaholic who was incapable or unwilling to delegate his responsibilities as they increased. The result was that Moses was tired and the people were tired too, having to wait for Moses to get to their cases and then decide the outcome. Leaders need input from others to help evaluate their work habits and then need to realize they cannot do it all - so they must delegate duties and increase the responsibilities of others
LEADERSHIP STEP: Your Step today is to get some outside input into your work habits, especially if what you are doing is 'not good" as Jethro described above. Are you exhausted? Is not delegating the possible cause? Is it time you change your work habits and philosophy, which would mean changing the way you use your time? Why don't you trust others to do the work? Are you ready to let go of how you have done your work up to this point in time and do it differently?
