The Success Boat

Success in business is to build a boat, learn to ride the boat yourself to then eventually find and train a captain to take it away from you. Sure, you might want to help by calling and advising the captain during storms but you shouldn't be on board steering the wheel.

In the beginning, a captain needs a clear direction of where to go. If the boat tends to go the wrong way every time you leave it, then you either have the wrong captain or you haven't trained him properly. After a while, the captain should have a general knowledge of where the boat is supposed to go and should get there with little to no supervision.

It's important to develop to trust with the captain so you don't feel like you have to deal with the problems of the boat.
