Language alert

I use the word “Let’s”  too much.  “Let’s arrange things such a way.”  “Let’s work on this project.”  And so on.

Mostly “Let’s” comes up in situations when I should delegate and I’m not delegating clearly.   It reflects my own discomfort with delegating, not something from outside.  For example,  I’m trying to please someone or trying to not be perceived as too demanding or trying to remain involved with details that I get invested in but should let go of.

It’s not clear who winds up owning the task when I say “let’s”.  It’s a bad habit that I’m going to try to banish from my speech, and even more, my emails.
