Automate, delegate, and outsource

This is how you do more today than yesterday. You augment your capabilities with technology and additional human talent. Any significant goal will require all three activities.

In terms of big goals the commercialization of space travel is pretty big. You have the richest people in the world competing to make this happen. Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, just won a US Air Force contract via his Blue Origin company. Elon Musk and SpaceX are going to mars via the production of the BFR. While you may not be trying to commercialize space travel there are lessons to be learned from those who are.

Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos aren’t commercializing space alone. They both have a team. They’re spending money to buy other people’s time, so they can do more than what any single person could do alone. Hiring more people on average means you can create more value.

As freelancers and small business owners it’s comfortable to do everything ourselves. However there is work only we can do and there is work that should be automated, delegated, or outsourced. By removing the busy work you can focus on what matters.

Time management and self improvement will only get you so far.
