The decreasing returns of doing more

The more a single person does, the less time she has to communicate to others what she is doing.

Less communication leads to confusion, conflict, frustration, disengagement, and waste. Not ideal when the goal is to do more.

For many of us, it would be wise to consider doing less and being more transparent about what we do. Transparency leads to trust, respect, integrity, and excellence – outcomes that all ethical leaders should seek to generate.
