How do you decide between spending time casting a wide net to collect the maximum number of prospects or fishing in a small pool with a higher value catch?
With the wider net, you can catch a higher volume of opportunities but have to spend time downstream filtering.
However, fishing in a more targeted pool means that you’ll be relying on someone else’s filter, missing out on #opportunities they didn’t catch.
With unlimited time and a goal to find only the “fuck-yes” level of opportunities, the ideal scenario is to fish in both pools.
But for those who are time-limited, hopping from narrow pool to narrow pool might be the most efficient strategy.
