The workplace must learn to judge the situation
Everyone is full of confidence, because once they seize the opportunity, it means a rebirth and a sweep of the haze.
Especially in the workplace, the thirst for opportunity is even written on rookies.
But in fact, the result of “giving me a chance” is not necessarily “a surprise for you”. The possibility of suddenness may be a springboard for professional development, but there is another possibility-a little worse, it bringsFor you, it may be several times the loss of the normal state.
Just like driving on the road, you may encounter various road conditions at any time.
In the face of a sudden opportunity, stepping on the accelerator or the brakes, sprinting in the low gear or sprinting in the high gear. In addition to relying on the subconscious body response, long-term accumulated experience, judgment of time and situation, and calm and calm attitude,That’s the key to being undefeated.
Pioneers who “temporarily die” to entice Lao Li’s army are emerging trade.
As sales, he spends a large portion of it on building his own relationship platform.
Over the past few years, from the supplier to the shipping channel to the customer, a chain of sales relationships has been taken care of by him.
Coupled with the long-standing reputation, Lao Li is doing well in the workplace.
The opportunity suddenly came to my door, and an old customer with a good relationship sent a big order.
Lao Li knew that if this business was taken down, there would be no work for half a year.
The customer said that things need to be rushed and asked several sales companies that they were out of stock. Knowing that Lao Li has a good relationship with the supplier, come to try his luck.
Lao Li quickly calculated that the Russian supplier was a long-term partner, and the order limit was completely dissipated, and there would be no problem in the shipping channel.
He immediately responded to the customer, no problem, shipped within a week!
The customer reported to the leader cheerfully, but Lao Li quickly discovered that things were not as simple as he thought: in the cold winter months, because the temperature could not reach the production conditions, Russian suppliers stopped production.
In those days, Lao Li turned over the resources at hand and found that in any case, he could not make up enough orders for customers.
Lao Li summed up the lesson afterwards: he was dazzled by the sudden opportunity.
In the face of the huge temptation of success, how to maintain a calm mentality and not lose your sense and judgment for the purpose of “catch desperately” is actually a test of human heart.
Fortunately, Lao Li and the client only agreed verbally and had not had time to sign the contract, thus avoiding major losses.
Later, he made a special trip to the client company to apologize, and it took too much effort to repair the relationship and rebuild trust.
This story was told to me by my friend Xiaoxue. In the past few days, she was facing a situation similar to Lao Li’s at the time-a big order at her fingertips.
Xiaoxue knows that when selling, the action will be slower, and the variable will be three points more-the order is dropped or the customer temporarily changes the hexagram. As long as there is no signature on the contract, everything is possible.
If it had been before, she would have been patting her breasts: no problem, I made your list!
But because of the lessons from Lao Li, Xiaoxue took a lot of caution this time, and her response to the customer was positive but there was room for it: it should be possible, I need to confirm other alternatives and give you a reply as soon as possible.
The slow beat did not affect Xiaoxue’s taking this order, but to the greatest extent avoided possible risks, which ensured that she turned opportunities into gains and steadily held it in her pocket.
Indeed, some possibilities are fleeting, so many people will stare at it for fear of missing something.
But opportunity is just a possibility and does not necessarily point to success.
So at the moment it suddenly came, don’t prevent a short pause, observe if you are ready and have enough ability to catch it.
It takes more courage to give up opportunities than to create opportunities. Some people suffer from lack of opportunities, while others worry about too many opportunities.
You know that there is such a person. They have the enlightened minds that some people envy. No matter what industry they work in, the military can always discover and master the rules more than most people.
Because of this, they always get more opportunities than others.
Classmate Xiaofeng is such a person.
With the background and outstanding achievements of prestigious schools all the way, she graduated into the “Big Four” without any doubt after graduating from the economic major, and her future is bright.
It ‘s only two years later, when peers are working in the workplace, Xiao Feng is tired of it: “I ‘ve done all these things, and I have learned almost everything, so I just have to repeat it.Very bored.
“Sometimes, she suddenly became interested in the fashion industry and began to look for related study abroad opportunities.
After passing a series of language exams, although the interviewer was amazed at why such a person with no relevant professional background had this unexpected idea, Xiao Feng’s sincerity and smartness gave her the opportunity to study in Italy.
It is said that in the fashion field, that school is one of the best in the world, and there are only a handful of Chinese students who can get an offer.
Two years later, Xiaofeng returned from studying abroad.Before she had time to do anything in the fashion industry, the original company’s colleagues threw an olive branch-it was a global Fortune 500 company, and the company’s financial department was hiring the middle.
Xiaofeng hesitated before agreeing. First, she did need a certain fixed income at that time, and more importantly, she felt that “people in the fashion industry have relatively simple brains, and they still like to deal with people in finance”.
In the days when he returned to the financial circle, Xiaofeng was not happy.
She also couldn’t explain why, work was always uninteresting, “probably interest is not here.”
Within a year, she resigned, and this time she made up her mind to leave, it was still an “opportunity”.
Xiaofeng occasionally heard someone mentioning a top British fashion design academy, and she longed for it, although she knew that the school “has very high application conditions and more students from Europe and the United States, only 50 people in Asia.
Xiaofeng has no art skills. When we met a year ago, she was still learning about the sketch and the relationship between light and dark of the cube, but she died for four months, handed over three sets of design works, and miraculously received admissionNotice.
In recent years, Xiaofeng has lived like a legend, and every change has no symptoms and no fixed path to follow.
She is like a particle suspended in a fluid, constantly performing irregular movements-perhaps, her motivation comes from trying to grasp the opportunities that appear again and again in life.
That time we talked about the topic of “Hui is bound to hurt”.
She admits that if she were awkward, there would not be so many opportunities, she might still be doing the first job, and she would be promoted to a good position, with a stable and comfortable life.
If only from the perspective of professional development, Xiaofeng does not look like a case worth inheriting.
For most people, if you compare your career to a road, you must first know where your destination is.
Opportunities are like forks that keep appearing during the journey. They may be shortcuts or they may make you date astray.
It is not necessary to make a turn at the intersection, but only to clarify the goal, to find the general direction of the journey, and even to detour the road for a while, but it is not always possible to go around in the same place, or even go south.
Opportunity suddenly comes and tests one’s judgment and stability.
Sometimes it takes courage to give up opportunities rather than create them.
How should we face the opportunity? I have heard that too many people repeat without opportunities, and I have seen too many people rushing to “make opportunities”. That is the desire for success.
Indeed, maybe you work overtime every day until late at night, and the long-term hard work is not as impressive as a certain threatened death.
Everyone knows what opportunities mean in the workplace, but this does not mean that you can skip the period of hard work and wait for the luck to come.
A correct attitude may be that you do n’t demand when the opportunity is not yet, and do every little thing that seems to be inconspicuously. When the opportunity comes, you can see it clearly with a calm mind, and grasp or decisivelygive up.
No matter Xiaoxue, Lao Li or anyone else, they laid a solid foundation before the opportunity came.
In the workplace, the accumulation of contacts, the building of channels, the maintenance of customer relationships, and the continuous updating of professional knowledge, these seem to be worthless details, but you don’t know which of them will bring unexpected opportunities.It is also impossible to predict that the opportunities that are near us will be ruined by one of the small negligence.
Every successful person is playing the essence of outstanding opportunity, which is in itself beyond reproach, because such highlight moments are indeed an important turning point in personal career.
But as listeners, if we only see the coincident side A in the success story and ignore its ordinary, trivial, common, or even difficult side B, it is likely to block a dangerous situation-too much emphasis on opportunity, Quick success and even profit, and even become speculators.
Success is a matter of course.
Do one thing with no enthusiasm and perseverance, and opportunities will naturally come to you.
Similarly, if you focus your energy on things rather than thinking about success, fame, and self-proven, when the opportunity comes, you will not be too hard to catch it, which is counterproductive.
