What's the Worst Case Scenario?
By Jett Excellence on January 01, 2013
What's the worst that could happen? It's a very valid question, and one worth considering every time you delegate tasks or make a decision. Rather than bog you down in fear, this question actually frees you up so you can focus and be more productive.
When I was a manager and struggling with delegating tasks the question “What’s the worst that can happen?” became my mantra. If the worst that could happen didn’t include the end of the world, anyone being killed or maimed, or me losing my job I would usually go ahead and delegate the task. (By the way, most tasks pass this test.)
