Intelligence vs. Competence

Intelligence - a high mental and cognitive capacity. It describes a “good thinker”.

Competence – possession of adequate skill, knowledge, experience, and capacity. Note the word is adequate, not exceptional. Essentially, it describes a “good-enough doer”.

Most new businesses require the owner to learn intelligently, divide the tasks, hire competent doers, and delegate the tasks.

The business needs doers. All employees need to be competent at what they are hired to DO. An entrepreneur needs to be good at DOING the thinking and DOING the team-building and DOING the job the company assigns to him.

Be a DOer. Be a competent DOer.
