You Don't Have To Know Everything

I am not a tech-savvy dude.

I know how to connect to the WiFi in my office ... but that’s about as far as it goes.

I don’t need to be an expert in that, because I have people around me who are, and help me when I need it.

My time is better spent on learning and doing things that move my companies forward

...rather than trying to become an expert at fixing Apple computers.

When you’re a young entrepreneur, you have to wear a lot of hats...

You have to know at least a little bit about a lot of things...

But that does not mean you have to earn a PhD in everything.

In fact, if you try to be the expert at everything, you’ll cost yourself a lot of time & money ... because your focus will shift away from the shit that you’re actually good at.

You have to know when to handle things yourself, and when to let someone else do it.

Think of it this way...

If your computer breaks, you could spend hours searching for the answer, tracking down parts, and watching videos on how to fix it yourself...

Or

You can drop it off at a repair shop, pay them $200 to fix it, and while you wait, make some sales calls that make you thousands of dollars.

So the next time you encounter a problem or something that you know nothing about, ask yourself:

“Is my time best spent on this?”

Yeah...it might cost you a few bucks to have someone else do it, but it’s a small investment compared to what you can achieve spending that same time on what you do best.
