“I can’t.”

“They won’t let us.”

“It’s too hard to push that issue.”

I get it. It is frustrating to feel disempowered in your job. But — at the risk of sounding harsh — get over it.

Doing a good job these days is much more than taking orders. It’s leading and pushing when necessary to get the best job done.

Every day you should do something that feels challenging. Why not start today?
