How many opportunities come by, wave, tap us on the shoulder, maybe even smack us upside the head, and we miss them?

How do we know when it is the right time to do something? Should we be waiting for signs? Should we jump at every possibility? Do we blindly dive in?

What if we are not ready? How does one get ready for something they aren’t sure of? How does one know when they are ready?

Do we miss opportunities while getting ready?

It feels a little bit like a dog so busy chasing its own tail it misses the treasure trove of bones 10 feet over.
