Why is not Paul concerned about baptizing those who heard his Gospel, when Jesus had commanded to baptize everyone to whom the gospel was preached?

Jesus has commanded to baptize everyone (those obey the good news) to whom the Gospel is preached in Matthew 28:19. Then why did Paul say that Christ had not sent him to baptize? 

1 Corinthians 1:14 - 17

ESV - 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius. 15 So that no one may say that you were baptized in my name.
