Window of Opportunity

Yutang Lin

Recognize the window of opportunity for its transience;
Action or inaction, pro or con distances different routes.
Choices made accumulated to shape the path traversed;
The way ahead as well as its finale are tied to one move.


The window of opportunity may close at any instant. One's action or inaction, acting in tune or out of steps, would immediately decide a distinct route. Looking back at the path traversed one realizes that it is shaped by the accumulation of choices made. Looking into what may lie ahead, one should seize the opportunity as it arises and make immediate efforts.
