THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY
We must seize our opportunities if we want them, because secure as they might seem in the moment, they may never return.We think we can come back, re-visit, re-do. We think that we can be better prepared. We figure that when conditions aren't quite perfect enough, or if we don't feel like it for whatever reason, that we will take advantage the next time around...
But there may be no next time. We needn't be reckless, but we do need to be realistic. We need to see our windows and make the careful decision to open them, or not.
I appreciate my daily opportunities and do not take them for granted.
