Working hard or expertise, which one gets paid higher?
We have found out that it is the expert who receives greater pay than a hard-working person. You may be wondering why this is so.
An example scenario is when I went to a salon to get my hair done. There are two people who are handling my hair. The first one is the expert who checks my hair every now and then, and the assistant who does the hard work. Picturing out the situation, the assistant is exerting so much effort. But, she will not be receiving more pay. Why is that so? It is because the assistant may have knowledge in that field but, it is the expert who tells her to do this and that. The assistant is not capable of making the process done effectively.
On the other side of the story, it is the expert who is knowledgeable and has the skill to make the process effective. It is the expert’s experience and training that made him bring a better output.
There are two tips on how to become an expert on anything.
1. Doing it consistently
Expertise is achieved by doing the things that you want to master consistently. It’s because when you create something in a consistent manner, you’ll become an expert of that.
In doing the tasks or the job, again and again, you will learn a technique to improve it. Also, during working on those tasks, you will be experiencing struggles. Once these struggles are solved, you’ll learn how to work it effectively.
Creation is the highest form of something. Thus, when you create consistently, you’ll develop the skills in doing it
2. Teaching others how to do it
Another way of mastering what you are doing is by teaching other people. It is because when you teach, you will see a broader picture of the situation.
Teaching is also a learning phase to everybody, especially to those who want to learn and improve.
For whatever field of career, you’re in, when you’re an expert you will receive more.
In this video, let’s check why #expertise is paid more than just working hard. I also share how you can become an expert in whatever field you want to focus on.
I hope this has been helpful to your #freelancing career.
