Soren Kirkegaard on Resourcefulness

The more a person limits himself, the more resourceful he becomes. —Soren Kierkegaard 

Perhaps you think you need more time, more money, more skills, more connections? How can you do without and get things done anyway?

As an entrepreneur this may mean learning a new skill rather than hiring it out. I know I’m much more tech handy than I ever thought I’d be.

As a manager this may mean giving a junior person a stretch assignment before s/he’s ready.

From a day-to-day standpoint, you might give yourself less time and find the resourcefulness to get things done more quickly. This can help you maintain boundaries between your work and personal life.

Are you waiting for the perfect conditions to get started? How can you make do with what you have?
