Try the Handle
Permission is like a key to a locked door. How many times have we allowed a perceived lack of permission to hold us back from taking the action we know would benefit the team? This is like waiting around a locked door only to watch someone else try the handle and open it. When we use permission as an interfering thought, we are actually abdicating responsibility. This isn’t the case for clear rules and boundaries that are set. Life’s decisions are rarely found on those clear boundaries. I am talking about the grey area that has enough ambiguity for me to decide to take responsibility instead of waiting for it to be verbally given to me. Try the handle.
