Having a great idea, knowing what to do and what action to take, writing down a list, and setting up a plan is essential, but they do not equal execution. Doing is what it is all about. Implementation is everything, and objectives mean nothing unless they are transformed into action.
Your fortune, however difficult to achieve, is there. The trick is to recognize it. It comes sporadically and in forms disguised. But most of all, it comes to you in opportunities that are few and far between, sandwiched within an infinity of plausible futures. We look at the chance and see only the present. You must observe the opportunity and see the seeds of the future. If you are to succeed, waiting for ideal conditions or a situation is rarely an option. Excellent opportunities never last long and usually require a change in your thinking and actions. Often, you have just one chance, and if you do not take advantage of that moment in time, the possibility is forever lost.
