Putting your head down and working in isolation is a key part of getting to where you want to be.
Stopping what you’re doing to give yourself the opportunity to meet someone new might be an absolute waste of your time.
Or, it might be the opening to something new that’s 10x better than whatever it is you’re currently doing.
There’s a strong temptation to focus all of your attention to your work when you think you’re on the right path.
But, don’t forget that there’s always the chance that the next person you meet could open up possibilities that you’d never even thought about.
