The 148th Rule of Acquisition states that “Opportunity Waits for No one”. This is a good rule because it can be applied to the rest of your life as well as business. Already I have encountered a lot of “woulda, shoulda, coulda’s” from others as well as myself. My parents of course being the biggest culprits. My mothers passing earlier this year lit a fire under me to pursue things I always dreamed of. One good example was making model roads for display and maybe occasionally playing with my matchbox cars when no one is looking. I had always considered it then one day a few months ago I had the opportunity to make one for a class presentation. Now I do it for fun and for other people. I take pride in getting the lines of the road just right. Paying attention to detail and abiding by the Uniform Traffic Code to scale.
Seeing a simple dream like that come true after sitting in my head festering for many years has a calming, stress-relieving affect.
When I see the opportunity to do something, I try not to hesitate now. I don’t talk myself out of it (unless it costs way to much). I have had to many instances where I could have done something and I didn’t. This is where regret comes in.
I’m sure not every dream will come true but I will do my best.
Hopefully this post makes sense and is not a bunch of rambling…..
