Opportunity Game

Opportunities comes in a flash. We must be perceptive to catch it when it comes, or they will become opportunities forgone.

“The consequences of a lost chance rarely close the doors to future choice. But they narrow them to the alternatives that are all relatively unfavorable in comparison with earlier possibilities.” – Sidney Hook (1902-1989). The Hero in History, 8, 1943

“We cannot afford to miss any advantage. Never was any man too strong for his proper work.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882). “Perpetual Forces,” Lectures and Biographical Sketches, 1883.

“Three things come not back – the spoken word, the spent arrow, and the lost opportunity.” – Proverb

Opportunity Game – A Poem by Ogbonnaya Agom-Eze

You got to get it while you can
Reach out for the stars, look to the
main chance. A stitch in time will
always save nine; do not delay or
golden moments will fly by. Yesterday
is gone, tomorrow is not guaranteed;
make hay while you still may, for today
is fast fleeting away. Necessity they
say is the mother of all inventions; but
be wary my friend, or procrastination
will smother all your good intentions.
Poverty has a parent, sloth is her name.
Hard work is key to winning the
Opportunity Game.
