During the first 20 years of my professional life, I set many 5-year goals. Fortunately, I was able to over-achieve every one of them. These goals were almost always financial and material in nature, and every time I crossed the line, I wanted something bigger. It never fully satisfied me.
The Kairos Company affords me the opportunity to work alongside the best of the best. Meeting the great people I have had the good fortune to work with is my favorite part of working in the business climate. They impress me because they push themselves, always want to learn, and most importantly, are laser focused on the success of their company rather than individual recognition.
Does this describe you? If so, I am able to provide this talent and team dynamics to you so that your company can evolve into what it was meant to be.
What Does Kairos Mean?
“Kairos” is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment, the supreme moment.
In life, everyone has opportunities to step up and make choices when these moments present themselves. Most of us can look back and reflect on the outcome of their decisions during these moments. It could be a job you took, the person you decided to marry, a business you started … or didn’t start.
The best description I have heard on the Kairos Moment is from my life-long friend, Trent Walker. Trent describes the Kairos Moment as the perfect moment in time where an individual’s will matches God’s will. When we are open to the opportunities that present themselves, greatness follows. Unfortunately, too many people think of a million reasons why they can’t, or won’t, take a chance. We ALL have opportunities for these moments: opportunities to take an amazing trip, start a new business, repair broken relationships with family or friends, increase life or work skills. How do you react to these opportunities?
My life journey has been all about maximizing my opportunities: leaving a high-paying job at P&G to join a start-up making nothing, meeting my wife after posting a 1/2-inch by 1-inch job opportunity, and meeting friends I continue to work with across multiple companies. From all of the folks I wanted to work with to the great friends that I keep. My taking advantage of these opportunities have lead me to a full and happy life.
Life isn’t about the money or the toys that you take to the grave. It is about the relationships and experiences you are able to enjoy throughout your life. The people that you effect, the mark you leave on this earth. We live a short time on this Big Blue Marble, might as well take advantage of all of the opportunities that present themselves.
