John: “Essentially, I’m trying to take myself out of doing the stuff that I don’t like and focusing on the things that I love doing. So delegate almost everything that you possibly can.”
John: “Your name is on the door. So if something’s not getting done the right way, you’ve got to own it. You’ve got to take responsibility. You can’t blame other people for what happens. And so if something’s not done correctly, you have got to be involved.”
John: “When you share your knowledge with other people, they will pay you back in spades by calling you. And then it’s just simply a matter, at that point, mastering the intake process.”
Moshe: “If we look at when to hire somebody based on whether we can afford it, that is what keeps us stuck. That’s what keeps us from moving forward. The reality is, is you have to look at what is possible if I bring somebody like this onto my staff.”
John: “If you have a recurring task that you’re doing more than once, then it should be a system. And it’s got to be documented. And it’s got to be shared with your team.”
John: “If that’s your unique ability to do certain things, that’s where you should be spending 80 to 90% of your time. Most people spend about 5 to 10% of their time on their unique ability and that’s a damn shame.”
