Best Foot Forward
Ever wonder what foot to step forward- right or left? My next question is which is better? Your best foot forward is either of the two. Figuratively, this entry will talk about what to do when you face an opportunity.
Take a personal inventory. At your age, have you identified the field you want to work with? Well, we must. Or else, we won't go anywhere.
During an opportune time, you've got to step your best foot forward because you'll never know if it will happen again. The first appearance in the job interview is crucial. Mess it and you'll never get to see the Top Executive. Same as the drag racer. He should know that even an inch of advantage against his opponents is his victory. In American Idol, a contestant should showcase perfect performance once on stage to pass the judges' taste 'cause J Lo or Steven Tyler might kick him out.
It is our responsibility to equip ourselves with skills that we need in our profession. Students need to master their lectures before taking the examinations. By the time the great opportunity comes and we are not prepared and we mess it up, the breakthrough will find its way to your colleagues.
Think again. What opportunity are you expecting? Prepare for it. Same thing as the chief pilot does. As a rule of aviation, he needs enough preparation for a perfect take off. After some important procedures, he is ready.
Having your best foot forward, take off and fly.
