The inspiration for this post came from today’s experience at work.
The normal adage seems either one of the following:
- Be ready when opportunity comes knocking
- Opportunity does not knock twice
Today, I did the complete opposite. I have been targeting a certain country for purpose of expansion. Today, instead of waiting for opportunity to come knocking, I unconsciously went knocking on opportunity’s door instead. Yes I did. So what happened thereafter?
Surprisingly but happily the door opened, though not wide but sufficient for me to squeeze a toe in between :D. Translated, we made progress which would not have been possible had I stayed passive (wait) instead of go knock.
Heck, let’s go the distance. Go knock. If knocking on opportunity’s door does not open it, bash it, break it down…..either way just make sure it opens for you.
So there you go. Remember – proactive pays better than passive in terms of opportunity.
