There are an incredible number of great events coming up in the cleantech space in the Bay Area over the next few weeks - so many that it's almost overwhelming. It's possible to triple booked at least once a week!
As I'm putting the list of events together, I can't help but have a Fear of Missing Out (FOMO).
The solution: Have a game plan.
When I see my calendar becoming impossibly full, I ask myself some questions:
What would I get out of this event?
Am I going the event to meet a certain type of person?
How is this event different from others?
It's much better to go to one event with a purpose than bouncing from one event to another without making any connections. Be judicious with your time and energy!
Stay in touch. I send out an email once in awhile.
