Opportunity doesn’t knock like the police (hard and repeatedly, as if they’re going to break your door or glass). Opportunity knocks like someone who kinda doesn’t want you to even answer the door.
Its super-light, only one or two raps, and it doesn’t wait for you to get out of the shower. It leaves no note, and probably won’t come by your door again as opportunity always settles in with whoever answers first.
You don’t pass on opportunity. Opportunity passes on you.
It can find another human. You can’t find another it.
