National Dreams & Opportunities

National Dreams & Opportunities

Stopping a bank robbery.

He tackled a would-be-robber at risk of personal harm and foiled the attempt.

This was the story of my classmate’s dad back in the 80s.

For his bravery, the bank offered him a handsome cash reward or a job opportunity at head office.

He took the job opportunity and remained loyal to the company throughout the decades, rising through the ranks.

Not overnight but he went from bank clerk to bank executive.

It’s an amazing life event and opportunity, that I dare say was an inflection point for him and his family.

An act at a single point in time that led to a series of future opportunities and decisions.

Perhaps today the types opportunities are different?
Maybe a change in the size of opportunities?
Or just a change in our competitive landscape?
