I go to boss’s office and I want to ge permission to do these three things. (…) Here is how the boss hears it: “Hey, I have three ideas and if they work I take the credit because, well, they are my ideas. But if they don’t work, well, you approved it, so I gues that’s on you.”
We don’t want to ask for permission. Everything on this list we can just do it. It’s ok to fail.
