RULE 39: Cultivate A Skill & It Will Repay You Over And Over Again

Femi Kuti, a skilled Musician and Saxophinist

There’s a saying
that he who pays the piper calls the tune. And that’s true. But the piper can
decide how much he will charge for playing that tune if what he plays is:

• In demand
• Rare
• Particularly
difficult (or in some way unique) to play
Get yourself a
decent instrument, a decent set of tunes, an unusual or quirky PR approach, a
USP, create a name for yourself and the world will beat a path to your door.
And pay you handsomel.

“Once you can do something no one else can do – or
as few people as is possible – you can pretty well name your price. And believe
me it doesn’t have to be a particularly difficult skill, just one that somebody
else wants and will pay for”.

Once you can do
something no one else can do – or as few people as is possible – you can pretty
well name your price. And believe me it doesn’t have to be a particularly
difficult skill, just one that somebody else wants and will pay for. Remember
the guy who polishes the very best cars at a premium price? (Read Rule 7 on

You could train
to be a brain surgeon but it takes over ten years and aptitude and dedication
and steady hands. So, putting that aside, you could think about what you’ve got
to offer. What are your skills, your talents, your strengths and weaknesses?
Who needs those skills? How could you put them to best use? How do you tell the
people who need these skills that you have them? What skill might you be able
to master in order to meet a need that’s out there waiting to be met?
For this
exercise you are not allowed to say:
• Don’t know
• Not sure
• Nothing really
• Not a lot
• What do you
mean? Talent? Skills? Me?
Come on, we all have something we can do or could do
that is special to us, that we feel we could make a fortune from if only
someone would give us a break. We all have a dream we could follow, a plan we
dare carry out. Perhaps all we need is a shove, a push in the right direction,
a wake-up call to get up off our backside and actually do something. Well, this
is it. WAKE UP. GET ON WITH IT.
