You don’t get any awards for doing life on expert mode. Some of us (myself included) like to experiment and learn themselves. Today I had to snap myself out of this mental trap. I don’t know what I don’t know and oftentimes a solution is relatively simple.
That’s where leveraging others comes into play. Leveraging others isn’t using others, let’s kill that noise first. We leverage others every day through books, media, and all sorts of devices and gadgets that don’t enrich our minds or our lives. Once more, nowadays money have monetized their knowledge for a fee. I paid tens of thousands for college, what’s an extra few hundred to learn a skill that I can use for life? Or on the contrary, what’s the extra few hundred to learn what I dislike about something worth to me? That time saved is priceless.
So I’m neck-deep in this course that was only a few hundred bucks. Even though I’m in real estate for my day job, I have a lot to learn when it comes to the acquisitions part of real estate. And that’s the part that makes you money in real estate. In some industries education isn’t a true substitute for experience. It’s up to you to think and decide whether or not this applies to your industry as well.
