SPI #20 – Delegating

Doing everything yourself and trying to know everything is bad, … Pad says so … I believe him … but … actually I like to know everything – or at least I like to find out how something works – that’s the reason why I became an engineer and self-employed …

Of course time is money. If you spend time doing something, which somebody else could do faster and cheaper … and you could actually do something else – earning more money … that’s reasonable

… however … (there seems to be always an however, if you just don’t want to acknowledge that somebody else is right) … how are you able to trust this other people that they will do the work the way you want it to be done … how to know that they would actually be more efficient … all these trust issues … and when you have “no” money at the beginning of our entrepreneurial carrier (or even when you have started already some time ago) … delegating is not for free … well, this will take some introspection …
