Most of us are practiced to the conceptions of risk management or time management. Many of the same principles can be employed to making and responding to opportunities. Instead of thinking of opportunities as just "coming along", you can actually increment the number of opportunities ready to you, and there are specified precepts you can use to assess whether a "possibility" has real "probability" and "profitability" for you.
1.Expand your circle of friends. To increment the number of opportunities obtainable, you need to go beyond traditional networking to get friendships and trust with people who "aren't like me". Use any system you prefer, but be confident that your friendships take on various multi-ethnic, economic and social backgrounds,
2.Always be open to possibleness. Looking At for the unlikely, see the impossible and meditate the incredible. Life's biggest opportunities are often disguised.
3.Apply creativity. Intentionally think of a way to turn every crack-pot, bad idea into something usable. This is not about finding a way to invest in every strategy that comes your way, it's about applying creativity, releasing ideas on their heads, finding the kernel of wiseness or value, and throwing the rest away.
4.Avoid being overly tied to your goals. Goals, and programs for attaining them, can be extremely useful. They can keep us on track, focus our efforts, and motivate us when we're tired.
5."He who pauses is a damn fool!" There are times when opportunity pings, but only stays at the door for a moment. Be inclined to respond quick.
6."Fools rush in where angels fear to step." Being able to react rapidly is not the same as being foolish. Just About 95% of the chances, minds and invitations that get your way will not be worth going after.
7.Assess the chance of achiever. Just as risk management compares the betting odds of being struck by whitening (extremely unlikely) to the chances of a dangerous shipment being lost (more likely), and assigns different esteems to each, so opportunities have differing chances of success. Just because an opportunity could work out, doesn't mean it will.
8.Assess the likely payoffs. Again, borrowing from risk management, it's required to asses the potential for "winning big".
9.Actively call for opportunities. Allow friends, co-workers, colleagues, contenders and customers know that you are receptive to new ideas. They are much more likely to part a possibility with you if they know you are always "looking for ideas", having fun with possibilities and trying to realize the "next big thing".
10.Assess opportunities in full terms of your appraises. You know your intensities, your interests and your core values. There will be opportunities that will ask you to become someone you aren't. You could make a luck in carries, real estate, software, or a thousand other industries, but you have to live with yourself. First, sustain your integrity.
