Seizing opportunities

  • Last week I was fortunate enough to have a business meeting with a prospect in Barnard Castle. Arriving at midnight to the peaceful town of Teesdale (and after 5 hours of driving), my mind was focussed on a good night’s rest and settling in for the upcoming meeting.

    The next morning presented its own challenges; firstly, my sat-nav battery had died (and had cleverly chosen NOT to pack a charger!) and my phone which does have a GPS built could not get any reception (thanks T-Mobile).

    So with 2 hours to spare and no signal on my phone, I decided to make the most of the beautiful surroundings. Asking the locals of nice landmarks and places to visit, it was suggested that a stroll along the Pennine Walk would complement the lovely weather and fresh air. Finding a footpath, I decided to take a walk down to the lovely waterfalls nearby, treading very carefully along the way as I was in my suit!

    An opportunity not to be missed, I can happily add crossing a waterfall to my list of completed activities; and all it took was being in the right place at the right time (with time to spare) with a lovely but loud video above as testament to the feat.

    So the question, and the challenge to you is – Are you seizing every opportunity that comes your way? Do you make use of every business potential that you come across in whatever form it come?

    “Opportunities multiply as they are seized” -Sun Tzu (The Art Of War)
