Opportunity is sneaky.
We're told to watch for it. We're told that success happens when preparation and opportunity meet.
This is true.
But the thing no one ever tells you is how to spot opportunity when it arrives.
Maybe it's our culture. Maybe it's short-term thinking, or shrinking attention spans, or a poverty mindset. Maybe it's the looming threat of real – or imagined – scarcity.
Whatever it is, when we look for opportunity, we're often looking for money. Dead presidents. Dolla dolla bills, yo.
