A lot of hardworking people -- especially women -- fall into the trap of thinking, "If I just stay at the office all night, I can do it all myself." Those first months at Planned Parenthood quickly put any such thoughts to rest. There were jobs I just could not do, no matter how late I worked or how committed I was. To build the kind of organization I envisioned, I'd need to find people who had talent and expertise in areas I knew next to nothing about. Then I'd need to step back and let them do their thing.
