  1. Oh man. this is so relevant to my life right now.
    You know what’s really hard though Tim, being a B/B- at something and hiring an A/A+ person.

    I’ve just recently had decided to stop doing software developer projects(I’m a B developer) to focus on Operations Management(I’m an A++ at ops) and I catch myself fighting this on the regular.

    “Why should I hire someone else? I can do this myself, blah blah blah”

    1. Same for me, Sam. I thought I was a good designer back in the day until I started hiring better. That helped me realize I was better at the business of design than doing it.
