When less is more

Less is more, they say.

Clearly they don’t have my to-do list.

But they are right.

If you want depth, it comes at a cost. Usually breadth.

As a generalist, trading breadth for depth seems like a bad deal.

I live in breadth – It’s where I operate best. Covering a lot of ground, close to the surface.

But sometimes you need to explore the deep; to strap on the tanks and take a dive.

It means that you can’t get the same lateral movement you can in the shallows, but you get more depth.

Less breadth, is more depth.
