You know how you want it to go, how it is supposed to go. The agenda is established, complete with time marks. From 2:00pm to 2:17pm, this exact thing is said, this gesture is made, this PowerPoint slide is displayed. It will all work perfectly so long as we keep to the timing.
But timing rarely works that way. Careers rarely work that way. Our atmosphere has a way of wanting things for us that interfere with our timing. Opportunities lost, circumstances changed.
Sure, hold on. But not too tight. Know when to let go…especially when letting go will make that bond stronger.
