Opportunities abound

While contemplating, often it helps to have minor distraction. When I’m contemplating at my desk, sometimes the minor distraction of choice is the game “FreeCell.”

Even playing FreeCell is an opportunity to learn something. One of the things it’s teaching me now is about managing opportunities. There are strategies to the game; they mostly involve maximizing opportunities — if you increase the number of opportunities you have, the easier the game is to play. There is also a hidden lesson. Even if you can’t see the opportunities, if you plan a few steps ahead, and try not to go down dead ends — other opportunities almost always become apparent.

To have a plan doesn’t mean you have to plan for everything. It doesn’t mean you need to know the whole road. New opportunities will almost always appear -especially if you’re creating a welcoming environment for them.
