4. Two Lessons
There is something funny about people. What they don't have they will never get. A lack of talent for mathematics can never be compensated by studying hard. It will always be a weak point. On other hand, they can improve their real talents into perfection. This holds two lessons for you and these lessons are:
1. Never try to learn something for which you don't have a talent. It takes a lot of time and money to only understand basics. Time and money can be better used. E.g. for talking with an expert in field you try and cannot master. This is called outsourcing. Outsourcing to others what they do more efficiently is a successful management strategy and not a sign of weakness. 2. Develop your talents into perfection. Never stop improving yourself in things you are really good at. Become an expert in what suits you. Education is only way to improve knowledge of your own intellectual capital
The bottomline of this article is that you should be well aware of your talents as well as of your limitations when developing your business or anticipating changes. You should always be prepared to act efficiently. Educate yourself to highest level possible, or outsource tasks.
