And while many people agree that luck does create some level of opportunity – a chance meeting that leads to a job interview or a boss quitting unexpectedly, opening a path to a fast-tracked promotion – nothing enables greater career success than working harder and caring more.
I relate career success to success in sports careers, and it is exactly the same recipe for success: the harder you train, the more hours you put in and the more you care about winning, the better you will become.
Getting these photos of Hawks means I must have a camera ready when the opportunity presents itself. You can make a photo with your phone, but the hawks would have been just specs within the frame. I had to use really long lenses to capture these photos.
As I write this I am looking out my sliding glass door in my basement office. I see the Red-tailed juvenile hawks flying by and occasionally landing to hunt.
My Nikon Z6 with a 28-300mm lens is beside me. I went outside and already got a custom white balance. I am prepared and just need the opportunity.
What things are you doing today to be sure that if Lady Luck presents herself will you be ready? Are you prepared?
What can I work on today to be even more ready for finding customers?
