wait
wāt/
verb
stay where one is or delay action until a particular time or until something else happens.
“he did not wait for a reply”
2.
used to indicate that one is eagerly impatient to do something or for something to happen.
“I can’t wait for tomorrow”
noun
There are times when I don’t know all that will be coming but I wait for it without concern. With regards to the idea of building business, there is a myth pushed at times, that if you don’t chase opportunity immediately than you’ve lost the moment and it’s gone forever. I don’t believe that.

When the mind is creative, when it is open to anything and everything, it is like a limitless swirling sea and eddies of ideas that generate thousands of good, new thoughts while the flotsam and jetsam of bad ones are thrown upon dried-up shores.

Instead of seeing what ops are lurking in the waters you instead work on your craft: follow through on calls, build real long term relationships, encourage your team, allow their own ideas on how to fish flourish in the environment they are in, and the best catches will come. A leviathan will come to you. Schools of fish, of thought, will swim to you and that is the time to jump into the sea and work like a mad man with all of your energies to reel them in.

You will be blessed with the long vision gained from spending time in the crow’s nest. Opportunities will sail to you and I know you’ll be ready to fish and work hard! Sometimes you just need to sail upon the water and study the sea. Don’t eat the bottom feeders. Wait for the white whale. Your business should know its values or else you’ll be drifting with the currents and slapping with desperation at everything that pops its head up. You’ll be lost at sea. Align yourself with sailors that share your way of life. Iron men and wooden ships. They’ll come, they’ll come… the vast sea is full of surprises.
