Finding new opportunities is hard work. We stumble over a pebble beside the road, polish it, put it with other pebbles, hoping to make something valuable.
It's even worse when we finally decide we don't have enough time, treasure, and talent to take an opportunity across the finish line.
We let go of three opportunities last month. We’d been looking for ways to make 'em work for several months, and finally came to the realization that as good as we are, we couldn't do it.
Even after we made the right decision, I kept thinking about them, like running my tongue over a newly pulled tooth socket.
