Are you overwhelmed by the wealth of opportunities all around you? Perhaps you allow yourself to be pulled in many directions for fear of missing out on THE opportunity that could change the trajectory of your business? Are you tempted to say yes to everything because you think you should?
The giant underlying problem with saying yes to every opportunity is the opportunity cost. When you choose one alternative, you lose the potential gain from other alternatives . That’s because you cannot do it all! That is a fact. When you say yes to one thing, you’re essentially saying no to something else, and possibly something better. Each opportunity requires your time and focus or that of your team, so you must be discerning with which opportunities to take on. Filter opportunities against your strategic plan and vision of success to know if they support your goals or derail you from them.
