Everyone would like to be a big fish in a little pond so they can dominate it.
Accomplishing that used to be simple: just work and study hard, network, improve your skills, and move up a corporate ladder.
But the hot winds of internet communication–especially anything business or consumer related–have changed all that.
You may have spent years preparing yourself to become a big shot, only to see a new industry fall into the hands of a brash imaginative nobody–and leave you gasping.
Face it: business and social ponds will come or go in the time it takes you to find GPS directions.
Every day we read news of big fish left flapping helplessly in the mud because their personal pond up and moved or dried up on them.
Getting big and meaty is no longer the secret of success. Work on your jumping skills and develop a nose for new ponds instead.
