Size matters. Or does it? Isn’t it how you use it? I’ve been thinking about this a lot. The older I get, the bigger is my network. Throw in a dollop of Twitter followers, LinkedIn connections and Facebook ‘friends’ and the whole world could be my network. This is hugely exciting and absolutely paralysing overwhelming! I need a lie down.
That clever chap Pareto said that 80% of your problems come from 20% of people, 80% of business come from 20% of your contacts. The key is working out the 20%. If your network is increasing fast, how can you keep up with who need to be culled, which contacts need to be nurtured and which is the 20% when it changes minute my minute.
I think I shall go and live in a cave.
