Come On, Man—Can You Get It Done Or Not?
When you begin a sentence with “I probably can’t do this” you’re going to be right almost all the time. Choices:
- Learn how to do it. If you can’t, then
- Get help in order to do it. If that doesn’t work, then
- Hire someone to do it for you if possible. If that doesn’t work, then
- Admit it’s not important to you and move on.
This is why I’m an excellent writer but can’t sing. It’s why I subcontract a great deal of “work.” And it’s why teaching myself to type 60 words a minute has been far more important to my career than my PhD!
