A Matter of O's

Yesterday, while driving to a seminar, I saw a hawk swoop into some tall grass. In an instant he was back in the air with a field mouse in his talons.

When the hawk awoke yesterday morning he wasn’t assured of a meal but his instincts told him that if he kept circling and watching he’d at least have an opportunity.

When the field mouse awoke he was oblivious to the fact that he’d be a hawk’s meal before the day ended so he just went about his business.

We all wake up, prepare for the day and walk out the door every morning. Do we do it with a sense of opportunity…or are we oblivious?


  1. Some days your are the bug and other days you are the wind shield.

  2. When you are a hammer, everything looks like a nail!
