I don’t change my oil.
I didn’t create my website.
I don’t sow my own clothes.
I don’t farm all the food I eat.
I don’t do a lot of things for two reasons:
1) I realize that I currently don’t have the talent to do something;
2) It may take a long time to learn how to do something properly and I feel my time is better spent doing something I am good at.
As a construction professional, I do a fair amount of work for the projects I have. But electrical, plumbing, and heating professionals all have separate licenses which means they have training that I don’t have. I hire them to do their respective work. I can hang drywall, paint, make cabinets, and install tile, but I choose to hire professionals for these jobs as well. They have the tools and skill sets to get the job done faster and better than I could do it.
Don’t get me wrong. ANYONE can learn to do ANYTHING with enough time and determination. But my point here is to know your limitations and realize that spending more money to have a profession do the work may be better than you spending all your time learning and still getting mixed results.
