If you hang around the hoop long enough, eventually you get a bounce and have the opportunity to slam one home. It’s being in the right place at the right time.
In business, it seems, if you “hang around the hoop” long enough, opportunities come your way.
If you spend enough time with certain customers, you’ll start to understand their pain points and how you can solve them and build a company.
If you spend enough time with the right people, eventually there could be opportunity to collaborate on something big.
If you spend enough time learning about and working on given markets and processes, you can identify new opportunities.
It can take awhile for that opportunity to come, but from what I’ve seen, if you’re hanging around the hoop for long enough, it will, and you’ll have the opportunity to slam it home.
