Check out why someone famous had the need for a personal assistant when he was 18 years old:
“I think in the very beginning the hard thing is you think you can do it yourself and then there’s only so many hours and you’ve got kids and family and friends and how do I do it all?
The answer is you hire someone. You trade with someone. You trade the for two hours. That’s what I did in the beginning. Because I remember…I was just really young in my career, very in the early days, and I was running to get to the dry cleaners so I could get my only two suits because if I didn’t get them, you know, then the place closes and I can’t get on the plane.
And I was running to the airport sweating like crazy, and I’m a sweater anyway. Sweating like this, trying to get in the door, and it was like, what is wrong with this picture?
I could be doing something that’s so productive and I’m standing in line at the dry cleaning place. This is just nuts. And so I was really…I was like 17, 18, 19, I don’t know what I was, and I said ‘I’m gonna hire somebody.’ Two hours a day, that’s what I need to start with. And then it was 4 hours.
And so my view is I don’t do anything that someone else can do better, and I don’t do anything that isn’t the highest and best use of my time.”
