Seizing

I believe in always taking advantage of opportunities.  “Seize the day” is a great quote and a good policy to live by, but like everything it should be done in moderation.  One way I have seized the day is I woke up at 6 am and couldn’t go back to sleep. I woke my boyfriend up and said “Lets go.”  He was unsure, especially when he asked “Where?” and I didn’t have a clear answer.  We ended up going to the beach, making new friends and scoring a free dinner.  If I hadn’t decided we needed a random road trip none of those things would have happened.

I fully believe in seeking out opportunities but also remaining open to those that come to you. There are many ways presented that might not be in ones immediate idea of promotion for a company but when it comes along it’s usually a good idea to take advantage of it.

I think one way companies have recently seized an opportunity was when Xbox and Playstation used the exact same technology as the Wii to create their new systems.  There is no notable difference in the technologies except some prefer one to the others.  It seems a little shady but they seem to be pretty popular.

One thing I love is now the best cellphone network, Verizon Wireless, finally has the iPhone available! This will be a wildly successful venture for both companies.  Most people who were dying for an iPhone were not willing to compromise their service. Now many more people will have the product and be able to use it with much greater success.  Also, people who were only staying on the AT&T network so they were able to use their iPhone will likely switch networks, at least when their contract is up.
