TIP·36: If you have the cash flow, pay for those things you don't enjoy

I include this tip in my book 25 Tips for Productivity, and it is one of those things that are interesting. The principle is simple, if you have the cash flow, and someone can do a job cheaper than you, simply pay for it.
People tend to think that they are the cheapest option, and doing that they convert many tasks into really expensive ones. If you can produce $20 on an hour of work, and there is a task that can be done by other person for $10, and you choose to do it yourself, guess what it is not a $10 task any longer, you just made it a $20 one. Understand how much is an hour of your time, anything bellow that point, simply paid for it.
i.e. Also take into the equation preparation as well as cleaning time. Paint a room may feel like an hour activity, but getting the room ready may take another hour. Really that’s a two hour job. Get your rate, times two. If the quote is less that that, simply pay.
