Mastery or resources

02/26/2012

I know how to get a website online.

Everything from registering the domain to building the server to installing the necessary software and making it all play nicely together.

If I didn’t know how to do those things and wanted to get a website online, I would need to pay someone to do it for me (or call in a favor to a friend…). Less control (and speed) perhaps, but the same result.

A habit I see some people developing is both not knowing how to do something, not being willing to learn how to accomplish the task (without being instructed), and not being willing to put the money towards hiring a competent freelancer to do the work.

I’m pretty sure you have to pick one.
