I’ve just decided to pay people to make things happen even if I [think that] can do that myself better and cheaper.
“I can do that myself cheaper and better” (c) Pretty much everyone I know
If you’re a regular reader, you might remember my idea from September 2013 (now is June 2015) about attracting street workout guys to the area I live in.
The idea was to install a gymnastic bar nearby and thus make the neighbourhood more attractive to types of people I like to hang out with.
As you might have guessed, I never pulled that off.
On the other hand, I have a broken gymnastic bar just 50 meters from the house.
Which was fixed in a matter of day (and $20) by a person I’ve hired to do this.
Wow! That simple. Allocate a budget, get a specialist and save yourself 18 months (or whatever the number is) of your life.
One of the functions of money is a means of value exchange.
Can you really say you value something if you’re not ready to put some money on a table to get it done?
Why do you think it’s worthwhile to do that if the only way you’re ok with getting that is for free?
Given it took me almost 2 years to make that simple of a thing happen, how much time would it take me to get myself on to a spaceship?
Life is short! Ever wondered how much time you’ve wasted trying to get stuff for free?
