When offered the choice, I’ve always preferred to be a small fish in a big pond rather than a big fish in a small pond.
Being surrounded by others who are more knowledgeable, more connected, and more successful has always felt like a surefire pathway to growth.
But what if the water in the pond was saltwater rather than freshwater? Frigid rather than warm? Stagnant rather than flowing?
Size is only one factor and probably the least important – especially as the world gets smaller and more interconnected.
