You need an active role.
If you let someone do something to you.
First time shame on them. Second time shame on you.
If you leave something alone without your active role in it for so long a business will be in shambles, a mechanic will take advantage of you. You need knowledge of insight. “You cannot Delegate what you don’t know.”
You need to be a jack of all trades: You need to know the basics about your car. You need a general idea about everything.
2. Do things important and integral to your life.

Don’t allow for 100,000 dollar lessons to happen. Don’t trust a person with their top of the head estimates and give you 6 developers that need 10 grand salaries. Don’t do a over the “shoulder style” approach. You don’t want to micromanage but trust and confirm. Don’t be average. You want to be above average. You want to rise above the masses.
Don’t be proud be willing to learn. Accumulate knowledge don’t show off being an expert pretend to know nothing but be in truth an expert.
