Recently, the following phrase was brought up in a conversation I was having about opportunity:
During the conversation I challenged the person with whom I was speaking to consider a more apt phrase that I prefer as I believe it more accurately reflects what opportunity is all about:
Why do I prefer this phrase? To me, doors are meant to be closed. We close them for a variety of reasons including privacy, quiet and security. However, we open windows to let in light, fresh air, and the sounds of life --- especially as we head into spring.
So the next time you are faced with a challenge or opportunity will you be closing a door or opening a window?
I know what my choice will be...
