I came across a young man’s blog, which unfortunately is now offline, summarizing his experience at BizBuzz 2011, held in Nis, Serbia. My best friend is Serbian, and although I don’t understand much of the language, I still try to read things I think may be important or beneficial to me, with the help of Google Translator. In Krsto’s article, I found this nugget, translated to English by Google.
Trust. Successful people will give you the opportunity, do not think that their one minute of time is too expensive for you, think about how to shine in that minute.
This is a prize takeaway, worth every minute of reading. If you are struggling in business, whether you are 20, 40 or 60 years old, heed the wise words of this young man. Don’t be afraid to go for what you want, to seize the day. Invest that minute of time wisely, it may be the best thing you ever did to further your career or garner that new business opportunity.
So the next time you are presented with an opportunity to sell yourself, your services, your company, your dream … how are you going to use that minute?
