Hire experts, and then listen to them

Experts dedicate their lives to achieve encyclopedic knowledge of a topic. So hire an expert you trust, and then admit that he knows more than you.

If an expert recommends something you do not understand, do as he says — after all, you hired the expert because he understands things you do not understand. You negate the benefit of an expert if you cannot fully submit to the expert’s expertise, including the parts you do not understand or agree with.
