    #189 Deep & Narrow vs Wide & Shallow

    #189 Deep & Narrow vs Wide & Shallow

    This is a topic I have been thinking about some quite some time. The difference between approaching something Deep and Narrow versus Wide and Shallow is having a single-minded focus on one thing.

    This focus can lead to success in life.

    “You can get almost anything you want out of life, as long as it's one thing and you want it far more than anything else.”

Thank you

Hi Michael,,, thank you very much again for your conscientiousness and competence in your job. Really the best place to practice our English. Just wanted to mention that your films on you tub are as fascinating as your podcasts. I really appreciate your kindness when you put your time and effort into making films around England and show us stunning landscapes and breathtaking sceneries. I’m from Iran and every time in my free time I prefer to listen to your podcasts and watch your films.
