People Numbers

We’ve heard quality over quantity, law of large numbers, and the economy of scale. While all of these may have importance for achieving your goals or creating your success, the single most important factor may be surrounding yourself with the right people.

It is often suggested that positive thinking, seeking the positive from any situation or circumstance, and shutting out negativity are key components for achieving good results. Of course, this makes perfect sense, it relates to self-fulfilled prophecy and to our mind-set, which will not only condition outcomes but may also improve efficiency, reduce mistakes, and create a clearer focus.

I believe that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well, and that from individuals, to small groups and teams, to mid-size or even large corporations we can achieve greater results. What is most important to recognize is that all of the quantity, laws, and scaling won’t make a difference if you are not surrounding yourself with the right people. It isn’t quantity over quality, you don’t necessarily need lots of people, you need the right people. In your life or in your business, you’ll get it done when you are surrounded by the right people.

Ten of the wrong people in your network, life, or business is far, far worse than having only one of the right people. Choose people over numbers.

So true in so many situations. Do you have dozens, hundreds, thousands or more connections on FB or LI?

Do not waste time in connecting to the masses, rather invest in the essential relationships and nurture them.

    Thanks for the comment Gil! I believe it is about balancing your interactions, your networking, and your relationships. Some individuals or organizations may have specific goals, especially in social media channels, which may have a lot to do with building their brand as much as it has to do with building relationships. Regardless – people matter! 🙂
