A Note From Jim

When Opportunity Knocks… Don’t Rush To Open

When opportunity knocks, most people think you need to throw the door open and let Opportunity walk right inside the house.

Not so fast!

Sometimes disaster comes disguised as opportunity… especially if you’re already knee-deep in an existing opportunity.

This is where bright-shiny object syndrome can come into play.

That new opportunity hits your email inbox and you’re all in man… until you realize it’s just a giant time suck and you’ve frittered away hours of valuable time.

You can also fall into a “the grass is always greener” situation where you think that the new opportunity is better than the current one… it often isn’t.

On the flip side, opportunity can knock and you better let it in before it hits the next house down the street.

So how do you know the difference?

Sometimes you have to go with your gut.

Does it feel like you should go with this new opportunity, even if you’re already doing something else that’s working really well?

Sometimes you go with experience.

Have I done well with this person, company, etc. in the past and does the potential reward outweigh the risks?

In the end, only you can decide.

Listen to your gut… look at the facts… make your best decision and then stick with it.

Opportunity may knock infrequently… so just be ready to make a decision when it does.
