For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been enjoying some family time in Barbados and yesterday, on the way back from a walk along the beach. my daughter and I came across this scene;
It was truly amazing – we were definitely in the right place at the right time – 5 minutes earlier or 5 minutes later, we would have missed around 20 little turtles making their first trip from egg to sea.
Although time and place were essential in this instance, it did start me thinking about how important being in the right place at the right time is for business success.
Without a doubt, lots of business owners (maybe you) put their success down to this, but when you delve a little deeper, I’ve found that it is not so simple.
Everyone of the successful businesses that I’ve studied have been led by a visionary – an individual who is absolutely clear about what they want to achieve and more importantly have clarity about ‘why’ they want to achieve it.Do you have a Big Why and well as a Big Goal? Click To Tweet
It is this focus that resulted in them being in the ‘Right Place at the Right Time’ to take advantage of the opportunity that presented itself.
At the same time, there would have been many other business people at the same place at the same time who were totally oblivious of the opportunity that was there for the taking.
My daughter and I were lucky to stumble upon such an amazing scene. In business, however, luck tends to come to those who are clear about what they want.
As an aside, these turtles had a clear goal and were determined to achieve it – to reach the sea before a predator got to them! Maybe that’s for another post later…
