At a time when 996 is all the rage, this article written by Patrick McKenzie many years ago is particularly valuable: Don't spend work more, but work smarter. Specifically, there are three tips:

  1. outsource what can be outsourced.
  2. automate what can be automated.
  3. save time that is unnecessarily wasted.

Why?

  1. just like a price war, your competitors can spend more time working, i.e. everyone involute together.
  2. if it's impossible to evaluate something, it's impossible to optimise it.
  3. assuming your hourly rate is a hundred dollars, you shouldn't spend time on something that can be fixed for five dollars.
  4. the biggest cost of outsourcing isn't money, it's time, so that also needs to be carefully evaluated.
