There is always talk about being positive, staying positive, or discovering the positive approach. Perhaps most alarming is that the talk is coming from people who are often very pessimistic, perhaps optimistic, and may self-identify as a realist. Their voice screams opportunity but their heart bleeds excuses. Why?
The opportunist may tell you that your energy is best utilized pursuing opportunities rather than discussing why things may not work, arguing about the risk, and claiming that the goal is unrealistic. How do you spend your time and energy? Do you argue, fight, or debate the next steps?
While you may have heard that the opportunist is out to lunch. Keep in mind it may just be your lunch that is being consumed.
Hurry, there is still time.
