Leadership Quote: To Succeed, Jump As Quickly At Opportunities…

2013 02-24 Magnifying Opportunity iStock_000007342151XSmallThis month’s leadership quote: 

To succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions — Benjamin Franklin 

Benjamin Franklin certainly modeled the prerequisite to living his quote, that is, to stay curious.  When we remain curious, we can see the opportunities and avoid jumping to possibly erroneous conclusions. His inventions were all a result of curiosity, trial and error and seizing opportunities.

  • What might you observe today that merits exploration rather than a conclusion?
  • What opportunity might be there waiting for you by remaining curious and asking the better questions?
