Your team can't do it all. I know how it feels to leave something undone, it's not fun. The harsh reality though is that we cannot do everything and neither can your team.
That's why it is urgently important for you as a leader to let your team know what's most important. When you are clear about your absolute priorities, your team can focus on what matters most and finish the highest impact work.
It's a choice.
Energize your team around what's most important and then the unfinished unimportant tasks can be forgiven.
Let them know.
