Missed Opportunities


As a follow-up to my post from the other day about “striking while the iron is hot” in regard to educating others, I discussed a little bit about opportunity at Firehouse Zen.

The long and short of it is this: Anticipating that at some point, an opportunity will occur to implement your vision or educate others, good leaders plan for that moment, and await the timing to be right. If you present a great idea before the time is ripe, the message can get lost and your efforts will be in vain.
Opportunities for positive change present themselves from time to time, and if you, as a leader, fail to plan for them and aren't ready to deliver a message to move things forward when the door opens, don't be surprised if when it closes, you are still standing on the other side of that door, locked out.
