Being an artist doesn't mean doing everything yourself. Just because art is personal doesn't mean we have to make it selfish, or prideful. If we get stuck doing everything ourselves, then we're serving a mission that is no bigger than that, ourselves.
When we discover how to delegate though, it not only serves us and the project, but we have a shot at serving a vision that is much greater than ourselves.
There are several signs that it might be time for you to delegate.
1. You don't have enough time to do it all yourself.
2. The person you are thinking of delegating to is actually more skilled that that area than you are.
3. You can't always be there, but the project still needs to grow even when you're not.
Delegation is not a sign of weakness. It goes for beyond strength. It's a sign of wisdom and humility.
