“Most people are mentally lazy without realizing it” - Tai Lopez

When you’re building a business, or as an entrepreneur just starting out in business, it’s easy to think that the employees you hire will have the same sort of passion, ingenuity, and drive for success that you do, but this is a mistake. Instead, start with the simple understanding and assumption that most people will be lazy, more mentally than physically. This means that you should start assuming that they will do the job wrong. This is not negativity, it’s realism.

Secondly, build a training system that ensures that, from day one, they have all of the education that they need at their fingertips. Then, systematically and regularly quiz them, to make sure that they fully, 100% know what they are doing. This is one of the most important aspects of building a company, and I wish someone had told me to do it a long time ago.

Entrepreneurs and business-owners, listen to this episode carefully and take notes! If you take it seriously and implement it, it will save you time and a lot of pain on your journey to success in business.
