The fish, the sea and the barrel

It’s true, at least for now, that there are plenty of fish in the sea.

And it’s also true that shooting fish in a barrel is pretty easy if there are enough fish and the barrel is small enough.

You can’t have both.

Either you approach the world as a widely dispersed bunch of opportunities where you’re never specific or on the hook.

Or you realize that finding a very focused place to do your work rewards you many times over.
