Key Takeaways:

“If you want to be more productive, learn to delegate, because then you will actually focus your time on the really high-value stuff”

“Delegation is the path to freedom and it is something that you need. It’s a skill that you need to hone and you need to master it”

“A business is an entity all by itself. It’s not you. It’s a machine, it’s a machine to do lots of things. It’s a machine to provide employment. It’s a machine to serve your clients and customers and to serve a need. It’s a machine to serve you and your life. And for you to make money out of that so that you can go on and do whatever it is that you want to do”
