Flash Fiction (100 words)
The Door to Opportunity
“Sam, what are you doing?”
“Huh,” he replied, busily opening and closing each door in sight.
“I asked what you’re doing,” Irving said.
“Oh, I’m looking for opportunity,” Sam answered while continuing to open and close each door.
“I think, the metaphor means having to actually go through the door when opportunity knocks. Opening and closing doors isn’t going to achieve anything!”
“What’s a metaphor?” Sam paused to stare at Irving.
“Just a figure of speech, referring to something else to make a point – that you’re not getting.”
“Okay,” Sam replied and began to open and close doors again.
There’s a lot more effort required when opportunity knocks. It’s just giving you a heads-up. You’re still the one who needs to pursue the advantage being presented!
