When you’re deliberately looking for something, you’ll be more likely to find it. This goes for creatives looking for inspiration outside with their cameras to job hunters looking for new opportunities.
You have to opportunistic in your actions. This means when you see something you should react quickly or include it in your plans. If you believe that everything connects, then what’s staring you right in the face is another piece of the puzzle.
Whether that piece fits or not is to be determined but you don’t know if you can cross it off until you try.
A lot of people don’t get that in trying you’re guessing a lot of the time. But the guesses add up to create luck, success.
Some good advice therefore is to be observant, react and preferably do and then decide if it worked out for the best later. Even if you failed you will have learned something new.
