You must be thinking: “Oh I know this! I must take every opportunity available to me!” See, that’s what I thought before, too. However, there is a careful thought process that must take place before taking an opportunity. To start, you must be sure it’s actually something you’d be interested in, after all you may be spending a large amount of time doing what it may require of you. Second of all, make sure it fits into your schedule — if you have 10 different other things going on, none of them will get the full attention they deserve if you take up more things. Lastly, make sure you have the willpower to be dedicated to it or else it will just look bad on your part that you took the chance from someone that wanted it more and would have done better. Although this thought process is important, it should never take too long because in the case that you come to the conclusion that you want this opportunity, you want to get it before others do.
