You snooze, you lose…
I’m a proactive person. My usual modus operandi is to make a plan, commit, and take action. Only this time I didn’t.
I really wanted to go to Tuesday’s Leadership Under Pressure event at the Currier to hear Rick Kaiser, network and introduce myself to some of the other attendees. If I played my cards right, the people I met would springboard the re-brand of NH Business Guild and introduce me to several of Manchester’s A-list business connections.
It could have been a win-win. But I lost. The event is sold out.
Instead of hearing Kaiser’s talk I’m searching the web for interviews and articles featuring his insights and experience with leadership and I’m scrolling through my address book to find connections who may know someone who can introduce me to someone who knows some of the people I wanted to meet.
Because I procrastinated.
I got caught up in other things and blew an opportunity that would have saved me weeks, if not months, of research and networking. Which brings me to my point.
A lot of people say “no biggie” or “I’ll go to the next one,” but you have to take advantage of networking opportunities, especially these one-of events when they come up.
A missed opportunity is a lost opportunity and there are no do-overs.
