The corridor of opportunity

Recently, I had an experience that led to a decision that on the outside might have seemed rapid and reckless.

But it wasn’t.

Every morning I write out the Standards I have for my life; my non-negotiable goals.

When you do this every day, you prime your Reticular Activating System to see opportunities and  move you towards that target.

If you’re standing still and looking down a corridor, you can’t see which doors are open, and which aren’t, or what is through the open doors.

When you start moving, you get to see through the open doors.

And if you know what you’re looking for, you can step through the doors that lead there.

But here’s the thing, the doors don’t stay open for ever. Sometimes the window to act is short.

So then you are clear on what’s important, and you see an open door that leads to what you want, you can step through it.

Are you stepping through the right doors when they open for you?
