Seize the moment

There is nothing so quick
Nothing so fleeting
Nothing so slippery
Like opportunity
It requires long preparation
Perseverance and hard work
To make use of it
It requires a wise and a discerning heart
To recognize it
Once opportunity knocks at your door
Don’t think twice
Don’t deliberate or consult people over it
Before it quickly and quietly slips away
Grab it and maximize it
It will always be to your benefit
Only if you seize the moment
“The race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong…time and chance happen to them all.”…Ecclesiastes 9:11
