Jae’s Manifesto Rule #3: Don’t Confuse Commodity With Specialty

The reality is that I spend most of my time thinking: “how can I explain it so that a common-sense person can understand it?” The problem I have created for myself is that people take away the idea that “this is easy, I can do it myself, I can make the judgement myself, unassisted.” This is an unintended, unfortunate consequence. I could simply say “this is too hard for you to get,” but that would be untrue, and the line in the sand is thin, indeed.
