When I was a small boy, my father, one of the wisest people I’ve ever known, gave me a piece of advice that I’ve tried very hard to adhere to my whole life.
Simply, he told me that the highest form of efficiency was to never do anything you can get someone else to do for you.
Throughout my life since then, many people have thought that I was lazy. I would argue that I was merely following my father’s advice and being incredibly efficient by delegating as much as I could.
But why do I believe that this is so important, particular in business?
Because it gives me time to think.
