Columbus Day commemorates the discovery of America. While the actual “discovery” part is up for debate, there is a valuable lesson to learn from Columbus’s travels. While his goal was to find a direct route west from Europe to Asia, he ended up finding the “New World.”
In business, Columbus’s New World is like the opportunities that we, as entrepreneurs, long to discover. When opportunity and adventure knock, be sure that you are quick to answer. You never know what exciting outcomes await you if you embrace the opportunity.
Here’s to new adventures. Happy Columbus Day.
