No Opportunity Wasted

Are you wasting opportunities in your life?

I was recently at an event featuring Phil Keoghan, who is the host of The Amazing Race. Phil spoke about his philosophy and the events that have led him to create a new program called No Opportunity Wasted -- or NOW.

And the key message in his talk is that the only time you have is right now. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come.

Perhaps the idea of his I most appreciated was this: make certain you have a "life list". Your life list is the list of things you absolutely wish to accomplish before you die. And here's the juicy part -- then go about making a career out of accomplishing the things on your list.

You see, most of us have it the opposite. We pursue a career so that one day we might be able to accomplish some things we really want to do before we die. But how cool would it be to actually figure out a way to get paid while actually doing the things we want to do before we die all along the way?!?

All I need to work at is accomplishing them and then as I do, identifying something new to add to my list to keep it fresh and full!

What an inspiration this idea is for me. And Phil is walking proof that it can be done.

So let me ask you this question. What opportunities are you allowing to pass you by because you're waiting for tomorrow?

Let no opportunity be wasted; instead learn to spot and act on them now!
