After walking a client through the 20 Points Business Analysis I’ve created I realized that I’m taking for granted the knowledge I have in my head.
In the past I would frequently think, “I have nothing to offer anyone else.” or “Everyone knows what I know.” or similar thoughts. What I’ve come to learn is that is completely wrong. I understand that not everyone is an accountant or wants to be. However, I’ve made the false assumption that all business owners understand the basics of accounting, and that just isn’t true. Many know only very little. Some know nothing at all and don’t even understand why they should know the basics.
Fortunately I can help with that. But that’s not the point.
The point is I have been taking for granted the knowledge that is in my head. I’ve assumed everyone knows what I know to an extent. And they don’t.
And that got me wondering. Do you take for granted the knowledge you have in your head? Do you assume that everyone knows what you know? Can do what you do?
Because I’m hear to tell you they can’t. Yes, some can. But many can not.
I would love for you to share with us, me and the other members of this community, what knowledge you have that you’re taking for granted. Maybe there’s people right here, right now that can really use what you know.
