Serendipity: The Right Place At The Right Time, +/- 1/1,000th of a Second

Bee flying in front of butterfly

Butterfly in my back yard.The bee is in flight, while the butterfly is at rest.  The Texas Ebony trees in our back yard are in bloom, and the fragrant blossoms attract clouds of these translucent pale butterflies.  I was trying to capture a butterfly, and the bee flew into the picture just at the "right" time.

Some business is like that.  Successful transactions that take place because (1) you were prepared, (2) you were in the right place, and (3) you were there at just the right time.

I think it was Zig Ziglar that defined success as the place "where preparation meets opportunity."  I hope your preparation pays off in spades today!
