I am going to need a bigger plate.

It’s Easter dinner and I look over the table admiring the abundance of food and beverages. I pile the ham on my plate, drizzle the orange fig glaze. Next, I place a generous helping of scalloped potatoes made with three cheeses that ooze across the plate. Can’t forget the veggies, so I add the roasted asparagus and continue adding different food groups to my menagerie. I can’t help but think that because I am offered so much, I take so much. It’s not gluttony; it’s opportunity!

As in life, the more you do, the more opportunities you have. It seems like common sense or a convoluted mathematical problem. It’s exponential. The more you do, the more people you meet. The more people you meet, the more opportunities you have. The caveat here is to ask someone that is also busy. If you need something done ask a busy person. They will more than likely find room on their plate to accommodate your request.
