At one point in my life I was faced with a decision, and the wisdom that was provided to me was “Always Walk in the Direction of Opportunity”. That statement has stuck with me these past 12 or so years and it’s been the reasoning behind my move to St. Kitts, my first move to Austin, and many other big decisions along the way.
But what do you do when the opportunity you are looking for has yet to present itself? Creating your own opportunities might be one way to go about….and a very good option at that. But what I have decided to do is launch, “Operation Opportunity”. You see, I’m not really sure what it is that I’m looking for. Adventure: Yes, Family Connection: Yes, Bikes: Yes…..but how to combine those things is still uncertain.
Operation Opportunity is a beautiful and simple little idea. I want everyone I am connected with to list off an opportunity they have available for someone else. It could be a unique job, available accommodations, travel options, events, or anything else. I know we all have opportunities that we can give to others….so this is your chance to “Pay it Forward”. This is not a typical job site, travel site, or anything like that which you’ve seen before. This one is all about super fantastic and one of a king opportunities that you’d never come across unless you knew the right people. You all ARE the right people, and I want for you to share your opportunities.
I’m not sure where this will go, but the upside is huge. Should it catch on and the should the magic happen….this could skyrocket into its own identity and website. Best of all, it will allow thousands of people to “walk in the direction” of something incredible.
Okay, so to kick things off I want you to share all your amazing opportunities in any of the following ways:
- Post your opportunity in the comments section below
- Tweet out your opportunities using the hashtag: #OperationOpportunity
- Use Facebook, G+, Twitter, Linkedin, and everything else to promote this idea so that all your friends can get involved and share their opportunities
That’s it. Let’s see if we can create something great together. Let’s make some amazing opportunities happen.
