We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. Albert Einstein
So, you’ve been doing this business for a while. You started it up all by yourself and it was tough. You made it through because you are passionate about it, and you believe what you do adds value to your market. But sometimes you just want to hear other people’s thoughts, preferably unbiased opinions. This is when you realize that you need to expand your knowledge base to invite new ideas and be open-minded.
You don’t know what you don’t know
“Oh, I didn’t know that!” Great! Now you’ve just learned! Congratulations!
My daily goal is to learn something, anything. Learning doesn’t stop after you graduated from school. Life is an ongoing learning process. So is doing businesses.
In order to keep up with the ever-changing market, you need to keep on learning. But you can’t do everything, can you? You only have 24 hours a day. So, the best way is to hire people who possess the knowledge and skills you don’t have but needed for your business. You can either hire employees or service providers or both. This is when you transitioned from an entrepreneur (often solopreneur) to a manager who utilizes resources to get the desired results.
Changing the mindset is Step 1.
Accept the fact that your own knowledge is limited.
Accept the fact that you just can’t do everything by yourself.
Accept the fact that if there is something you have never heard, it doesn't mean that it does not exist. You just don’t know what you don’t know (outside of your circle).
Please feel free to share your comments. You can learn something by talking to someone as we exchange information. Try to expand your circle of knowledge and open your mind. Enjoy life!😊
