Many years ago I decided it would be a good idea to learn a foreign language. So I tried.
Then someone told me “If you were a CEO you could just hire a translator.”
Throughout my life I have read and heard plenty of good advice. However, it is extraordinarily rare that this advice is contained in a single sentence and that it is a specific sentence I never forget.
If you insist on doing everything yourself, make damn sure you can count everything you want to do on a single hand. If not, limit your competitions to those with a similar handicap.
