Do you answer the door?

3D rendering of a compass with a Opportunity icon.

It happened just the other day. “Do you have a few minutes to chat?” For you, of course!

And then it happened. Opportunity. Right there in front of me. A little daunting, a bit frightening, kind of exciting.

It would have been easy to say thank you and pass. But this opportunity is unique. It’s interesting. It’s about a topic I love. It will require a skill that would be useful and interesting to develop. And I’m honored that I was asked to be a part of this exciting venture.

I think I (maybe?) waffled a little. It happens! I know that I will give it a great deal of thought and do my best to make it good. I know that I have a community that will support me as I gain confidence and that will nudge me if I go off track.

I decided (even with the waffles) because it felt right. Scary can still be right.

I look forward to seeing how this will play out, and I’ll keep you filled in.

How do YOU know when an opportunity is worth it?  Leave a comment and let me know….

Until next time,

  1. Thank you for posting. I have an opportunity and have been contemplating. However, I cannot think of an opportunity that isn’t worth it. Thanks Noree!

    1. Hi Gwen, I’ve come to believe that some opportunities are best left to pass right by me! Good luck with your contemplating. I look forward to hearing more about it.
