"Luck is when preparation meets opportunity"
Seneca,Roman philosopher, (5 BC – 65 AD)
On our morning beach walks we often see surfers getting ready to ride the waves. Typically they go through a number of limbering up exercises and yoga style stretches and poses.
One exercise is swinging their arm and bodies from side to side as in the photo. So they will be ready to seize the moment when that great wave comes along and ride it as far as they can.
In business we don’t always know where opportunities are coming from. We need to be mentally flexible and alert so we can recognize opportunity when it comes and to be able to act on it decisively and effectively.
What exercises do you do to be prepared to meet an opportunity when it arises?
