146: The Art of Knowing Just Enough

You don't need to be an expert at things to do them. You just need to be good enough.

The Orthogonal duo today discusses how you really need to have a basic understanding of the parts of businesses. And also how being "good enough" is often good enough.

  • If you want to get good at something, focus on the few key parts of it
  • If you want to be a business owner you have to be "good enough" at things like accounting, marketing, finance, and management
  • If you treat everything as"that's not my thing" - you make yourself fragile
  • Proficiency trumps efficiency - Bruce Lee
  • Routine solves more problems than money or time
  • Everyone should be doing continuing education of some sort

Bonus: The story of how Brett got free whiskey because of his dog, Whiskey.


"The best part of this story is that I learned you have a karate trophy from when you were ten"
