Will you be ready when the door of opportunity swings open?

Lessons from characters of Times Square

We were walking through Times Square on Memorial Day.

Before I knew it, my son was holding on to Captain America’s shield and flanked by Spiderman, Elmo, and Hello Kitty.

My son was already smiling so widely and ready for the shot. Not wanting to disappoint him, I snapped several shots and paid the costumed characters for their trouble.

Thing is, it happened so fast.

Those guys really know how to seize an opportunity when they see one.

Blame it on circumstance

Sometimes we blame it on our circumstances for the lack of opportunities. Frankly, it is never the circumstances.

Because life is full of opportunities.

The questions are then:

  • Would you recognize the opportunity when it presents itself?
  • Are you ready to seize it when it is available?

The future of video

Video is going to be more important in the future.

If you have missed out on blogging, podcasting, online learning, then you should really seize the opportunity that video has presented.

Question is, are you ready?
