words worth pondering: Opportunity is missed by most people because...

This quote applies to so many situations.

I used it as the intro to the chapter in my book "Hot Tips for Career Chicks" about how to "Meet Successfully" (which is the theme of this week's posts here on Career Chick Chat).

It was really hard to find anyone who had anything positive to say about meetings.

Some of the quotes I found about meetings did make me laugh. Like John Kenneth Galbraith's quote, "Meetings are indispensable when you don't want to do anything". And, Thomas Sowell's, "People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything".

We've all been to some shockers. And most people seem to dread them.

But meetings are where information gets exchanged, decisions are made and ideas are shared. They can be a brilliant opportunity to showcase your abilities and provide a great opportunity to advance your career.

Words worth pondering whilst you head off to your next meeting with a new spring in your step?
