Occasionally, we need experts to help us out. When we are faced with a challenge we never encountered we can plod along and try to figure it out or we can sprint at the beginning.
An early sprint creates accelerated learning from experts who already know what we are dealing with. Trying to figure it out ourselves is a great way to learn, but it is a slower process filled with potholes and blindspots.
Knowing who to call is tricky. Not all experts are equal.
