“If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask what seat! Just get on.” - Sheryl Sandberg
How do you react when offered a tremendous opportunity? I have seen many when offered the chance to be a part of something awesome, they get caught up in the tiniest details which then hold them back from attaining their goals.
Using this example from Sheryl, does it really matter which seat you would have on the rocket ship? Don't you all end up in the same place getting to have relatively the same experience along the way?
I have watched so many people I have had the pleasure of knowing do the exact same thing. They get caught up in all the details and the opportunity passes them by before they get to make a decision. The ability to jump on these opportunities when they are there is one of the keys to the success I have created.
Think about it this way. If you are the person asking which seat you would have on the rocket ship, you might just watch me accept the offer of the final seat before you ever get your answer. Now you have missed the opportunity.
Do It Different!
