“Bigger is better” is the prevailing assumption, just about everything. It’s only natural for us to want to supersize our network of connections. The more people we know, the greater our chances of being exposed to opportunities; professional advancement, potential mentors, material success, etc. But in fact, supersizing your network can be not only be an exercise in futility but detrimental. Rather, it’s about surrounding yourself with a carefully curated group of people who will set the tone with people who provide value. Divide your acquaintances and associates into positive, negative, and neutral. You know who the negatives are; they take your energy. The neutrals take up the time that you need to interact with the positives. Get rid of them as well. Sometimes less is more, but life is always action. Satoru
