Of time, trains, and opportunity

Sonnie Bailey

25 May 2017

You can’t force opportunities. But you can be ready for when opportunity arrives. 

If you leave the door of your house a minute late, you’ll only be a minute later to your destination, right?

Not necessarily. If you’re taking a train, that minute can make the difference between catching the train or missing it. That one minute can translate to 30 minutes or longer – assuming you haven’t caught the last train for the day. 

There are many times in life where the luck isn’t just about whether you get the train, but when you get on the train.

If there’s something that you need to do or achieve, and there’s nothing in your way, what can you do to expedite it?

You can’t force opportunities. But it can pay to be ready – or even impatient – for when the next one appears.
