“We’ve Caught a Fish, Now We Can Leave”
With a couple of my old clients, I shared the sentiment that if we caught a fish in a location, we could move on and fish somewhere else. It was always acknowledged with irony, since we knew staying where we were was an easy win. But we’d also proved our point, and we didn’t want to punish the fish there. Besides, I was much too anxious to want to see new (and even find) new spots, see how far we could take a little bit of success.
Does that sound counterproductive? Does that mean we’ll catch fewer fish?
In the short run, yes. In the long run, definitely not.
