23 Nov Subtraction > Addition
By default most people try to solve a problem by adding something. As I’ve been re-examining many of my thoughts, beliefs and ideals I am beginning to view subtraction as the secret weapon. For me the ultimate goal is efficiency. I see no glory in doing something for an hour and getting the same result that I could have gained in 30 minutes. Addition is usually the easy choice. I feel comfortable saying that I am going to increase my revenues by spending more time each day engaging in sales and marketing. It’s not as cozy to say I am going to increase revenues by removing the 3 least profitable services I offer and focus exclusively on something.
