If there’s one piece of entrepreneurial advice I’ve heard more than any other it’s to “stop chasing shiny objects.”

It’s a good thing that Thomas Edison never followed that advice.

“Pick one thing, say ‘No’ to everything else, blinders on, focus deeply”.

It's sound advice, but the problem is that when I hear this advice I simply hear: “stop pursuing new opportunities… stop trying new things.”

In this episode I give you an alternate perspective on this common wisdom and how it might not be right for everyone.
