Lost OpportunityPosted: October 23, 2012
For-profit entrepreneurs grab at opportunity for fear someone else will if they don’t. Not-for-profit entrepreneurs grab at opportunity for fear if they don’t, someone else won’t. But they’re both wrong.
Any new opportunity requires time, money, and energy to pursue. Whether someone else will or won’t pursue an opportunity doesn’t change this truth, and shouldn’t affect your decision.
Decide which opportunities you will pursue by filtering honestly. After all, it’s not really an opportunity, if you don’t have the resources to be successful, or worse, if it undermines your core business.
