    Hello,

    I would like to translate the following idea:
    "apprendre a faire faire plutot qu'a toujours vouloir tout faire soi meme"

    Would the following be correct:
    "learn how to get things done rather than systematically taking lead"

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Learn how to delegate rather than always do everything yourself.

    "Get things done" in AE has a special connotation. It implies the action of somebody who accomplishes a lot.
