But the question then becomes: Which details? Spending time on trivia makes no sense. How can we sort out the minor from the meaningful?
Here are some points to consider:
- If not addressed by you, will the item be adequately addressed by another person?
- If the item is not addressed by anyone, will that omission be caught within a reasonable amount of time?
- If the item is not addressed, will the impact be noticeably negative and embarrassing or will it simply be a "behind the scenes" irritation?
- Is your input needed in order to put a particular spin or stamp on the product; one that is not yet known by your associates?
- Is it possible that your associates will do a better job without your assistance or that withholding your involvement will build their skills?
- Is it possible that, even though your involvement would be helpful, your time is better spent elsewhere?
- Have you sufficiently narrowed your involvement to particular key points or are you reopening the entire project?
