Overcommitment

I would not describe myself as type A. I would also be hard pressed to find somebody who would describe me as type A. However, I do tend to overcommit on projects to where I have no way to physically deliver on everything. 

The problem becomes exacerbated when one project takes longer than expected. Suddenly planned time for other projects gets shoved aside, putting other projects in jeopardy. 

While, it's easy to blame outside factors, the truth is that there are far too many projects for too limited time. 

It is vital to have the fortitude to say no and deflect the work to somebody who can deliver.
