Poobah

 Liz B. and I were talking about how we are the "Grand Poobah" of our companies.
We get to decide.
We decide how to sell, decide where to sell, decide sales price, decide sales target.
But I don't like selling. 
I don't want to be Grand Poobah.
And not just because it has poo in the name.

I am not a natural entrepreneur.
Why does it seem that being an entrepreneur is the goal in our society?
Why do I feel guilty that I don't want to be a leader?

I confess, I just want someone to tell me what to do.
 
(thanks Larua B. for the notepad--and for getting me)
This saying really strikes a nerve.
Hits a chord.
How is that said?  I am idiom challenged.
Oh, I just set myself up.
Like when I told Brian P. that my amazing ability to remember phone numbers was like that of an Idiot Savant.
His reply: "You've got that half right."
Let me rephrase:
My idioms are problematic.

So, do you know of someone hiring good taste?
