Most of us are used to the conceptions of danger management or time management. Many of the same rules can be employed to creating and replying to opportunities. Instead of thinking of opportunities as just “coming along”, you can actually gain the number of opportunities visible to you, and there are specified principles you can use to assess whether a “possibility” has real “probability” and “profitability” for you.
1.Enlarge your round of friends. To addition the number of opportunities accessible, you need to go beyond traditional networking to get friendships and trust with people who “aren’t like me”. Use any scheme you prefer, but be positive that your friendships accept various ethnic, economic and social backgrounds,
2.Always be open to possibleness. See for the unlikely, see the unthinkable and meditate the incredible. Life’s biggest chances are often secret.
3.Practice creative thinking. Intentionally think of a way to turn every crack-pot, bad thought into something multipurpose. This is not about finding a way to invest in every scheme that comes your way, it’s about exercising creativity, turn ideas on their heads, finding the kernel of wiseness or value, and dropping the rest away.
4.Avoid being overly tied to your goals. Goals, and plans for achieving them, can be extremely useful. They can keep us on track, focus our efforts, and incite us when we’re tired.
5.”He who waffles is a damn fool!” There are times when opportunity pinks, but only stays at the door for a moment. Be inclined to respond quick.
6.”Fools speed in where holy people fear to step.” Being able to respond rapidly is not the same as being weak. Just About 95% of the chances, thoughts and invitations that get your way will not be worth going after.
7.Assess the probability of achiever. Just as risk management compares the betting odds of being moved by whitening (extremely unlikely) to the chances of a important shipment being lost (more likely), and assigns different measures to each, so opportunities have differing chances of success. Just because an opportunity could work out, doesn’t mean it will.
8.Assess the potentiality payoffs. Again, borrowing from risk management, it’s most-valuable to asses the potential for “winning big”.
9.Actively invite opportunities. Grant friends, co-workers, fellow workers, competitors and customers know that you are receptive to new ideas. They are much more likely to deal a possibility with you if they know you are always “looking for ideas”, having fun with possibilities and trying to understand the “next big thing”.
10.Assess opportunities in full terms of your appraises. You know your specialties, your concerns and your core values. There will be opportunities that will ask you to become someone you aren’t. You could make a destiny in funds, real estate, software, or a thousand other industries, but you have to live with yourself. First, preserve your integrity.
