don’t tell me what to do

The secret to telling people what to do is telling them to do what they want to do. The challenge, then, is not so much in how you tell them what to do as in how you prepare them to hear what you tell them to do.

I don’t know about you, but I wish I had figured this out years ago.

How about you? Does this ring true for you? Why or why not?
