INSTANT MBA: Don't Be Irreplaceable

Today’s lesson comes from Bob
Parsons, founder of GoDaddy:

“People often say to me, ‘You must be a really busy guy!’

Actually, I’m not. I can make time
anytime I want, and there’s a reason for that: I accomplish everything through other people.

That gives me a tremendous bandwidth. And then, when I want to get away—which I do often—everybody who works with and for me knows how to handle things, so it doesn’t matter if I’m here or not. It shows trust.”
