I sometimes think about nets and balls on them, some are larger and some are smaller, the smaller ones roll down the net into the dent the larger ones are making.
And we can take this metaphor into many areas, and expand with values. We have the balls of money, where if you make some money you’ve got to be very careful because now you’re excerting a stronger pull, and all these other small balls can’t hold themselves at their position anymore and are being torn towards you.
The same goes for having one great idea.
And the cure for that I think is to realize that if you’re the biggest ball, you’ll eventually stagnate and the best cure is to roll around balls who are bigger than you.
