Experience is expensive and you always pay up front. I’ve been taught that statement, learned that statement repeatedly and come to believe that statement until someone smacked me in the head to correct me.
Yes experience is expensive, and yes you do pay up front. But who said you have to be the one to pay the price? Why can’t someone else pay the price?
Look at it this way - someone already invented the wheel, so why are you going through all the growing pains to reinvent the wheel? That’s absolute insanity. Someone, somewhere has already solved the problems and challenges your facing.
Odds are they probably solved them honestly and ethically and know the success formula to give you the same results. It makes sense then to go out, find these people and do exactly what they’ve done. You should get exactly the same results with none of the aggravation, pain and effort required.
Why then don't we do this, and what can we do about it? We as professionals, and people on general, tend to over-complicate everything. We feel perceived as more important and hard working if the processes are complicated.
This thinking is both ignorant and wasteful. Talk to any if the most successful people and they all tell you one of the biggest secrets is simplification. They know that results are more impressive than the appearance of hard work.
To solve your challenges you need to shift your approach and take the the following 5 actions:
Experience IS expensive. Let someone else pay the price. Implement the solutions of other successful people and get what they've got without all the pain and financial challenge.
