Maximizing Your Opportunity Window

In my last post i talked about what NOW is the right time for. The implication, of course, is that there are certain periods of time where you can actually take advantage of opportunities that come your way. Let's call that your Opportunity Window. In the Standard American Lifestyle, that window is narrow. Really narrow. It probably starts somewhere at the end of senior year in college and ends a few months afterwards.

There are small blips of opportunity afterwards, too. Getting fired creates a window. Some sort of windfall income might create a window.

That sucks. Someone with a Standard American Life probably has no more than a year of Opportunity Window in their lifetime. It's only during those times that they can start a new business, leave their lives behind and try something new and exciting, or just make a drastic change.

Chinese Literacy Project Week 2: Got No Time for Sittin' Around (watching TV)

On Kelby Barker

Overview

Well, the mission started off decently. This was one case in which I set a lofty goal and fell short, however I could have done significantly worse. My original plan called for a full week's worth of studying, that is with an undetermined break day (6 days reading and studying total). Life and laziness got in my way, however. Due to a combination of my ever-changing life here in Zhengzhou and a lack of motivation I did 4 days of reading in and 3 of vocabulary review. In each sitting I read 2-3 articles though, so I probably broke even as far as articles go.

    The Week's Results

All in all, not a horrible week. This week's outcome indicates to me that I'm not going to start strong and fizzle out as I have a lot of improvement I can make. Let's break it down a little bit.
