“Five thousand years ago, every human was a hunter. If you were hungry, you got a rock or a stick and you went hunting.
The problem was that all of the animals were either dead or really good at hiding.”
One could argue that the problem wasn’t the change in the animals, but instead in the humans; to whit, there came to be too many of them.
Arguably the same problem exists with “prospects” – too many marketers. How does that change the meaning of Seth’s metaphor?
I think this is actaully an attention problem.
