Maximizing Your Opportunity Window

On Tynan

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.

It's about standards, specifically the ones you hold yourself to.

When you hold yourself to high standards, you abide by them right? And when you abide by those standards, it will show in your actions, in your words and behaviors. People will come to expect that of you.
