The Value of Investing in Experience

Came across this interesting article on “Why Expertise Matters.”  While it touches on the social and political, it is a pretty even-handed piece that appears safe to share.

The point isn’t the political or social consequences it discusses. What hits home is the author’s comment that simply making a statement can quickly qualify one as an expert. In my mind, it has diluted the value of the word “expert”, and, in turn, diminishes the importance of utilizing “true” expertise; i.e. making investments in people that have the objective perspective, the right experience and the necessary aptitude to help you succeed.

You can’t buy time – it’s the one commodity that everyone has in equal abundance – but you can buy experience. True, there is a cost. But by utilizing the right resources, one saves time in the short run, and money in the long run. “Spend a dime to save a dollar” might be the motto here! Buy the right experience when and where you can, and then time becomes your ally, not your enemy.
