StartUp Tip #38: Beware of distractions disguised as opportunities

360

If you are good at what you do and pursuing your career, opportunities will come your way.

As your success grows, surprisingly, the real challenge might not be finding opportunities so much as choosing between them.

It is important to recognise the difference between an opportunity and a distraction.

An opportunity is not really an opportunity if it deviates you from your goals, even when it is lucrative and looks great.

An opportunity that is really a distraction almost always looks great.

It will seem like an easy way to make money, and it will be similar to what you do.

It will excite you at first. However, it will deviate you in at least one important way or another.

When you are not focused, you are tempted to embrace every opportunity that comes along.

Ideas are an entrepreneur’s secret addiction. More often than not, ideas are simply distractions disguised as opportunities.

When you know where you are going, you are able to easily say no to things that looks exciting but are not adding to your long-term goal.

Being clear about your “yes” opportunities makes it easier to say “no” to distractions.

Not every opportunity in mining is your opportunity.

Not every opportunity in network marketing is your opportunity.

Not every opportunity in another country is your opportunity.

Know yourself, know you path. Plan your path & focus on it all the way.

It is when your vision is fuzzy that you are likely to embrace every opportunity.

When your vision is crystal clear, you will confidently walk away from distractions.
