One thing I have learned from my business life so far, is that the early bird always catches the worm.
What do I mean by this? Let me explain.
Opportunities will come and go, and some will be more beneficial than others. Like everything, nothing is the same, however one thing that I have seen to always be the same, maybe the only factor that is the same with everything in business, and in life, is being first always gives an advantage. Now this doesn’t mean winning a race or a sporting event, but in terms of releasing a product, or contacting a person, being first has always given an advantage.
If a business releases a huge new product (Apple with the iPhone or iPad) they normally in the grand scheme of things become the market leader indefinitely or at least for a long period of time, and the other competitors find themselves lagging behind and trying to beat the leader in innovating for a second time.
Contacting or finding a helpful contact, like in my post a couple of months ago, its not what but who you know. If you find someone GRAB THEM THEN!
Do not wait, someone will grab them after if you wait, and then your opportunity is gone.
Business is a fast game, especially in the world of technology, tech moves quickly and in order to succeed you must move with it.
This is what I mean by the early bird catching the worm. Aspire to be the early bird, and soar.
