Every movement in the grass is a potential meal for a hawk. Every boat in the sea, when it comes up on a submariner's radar, is a potential target. Every plane in the sky, to a fighter pilot, a potential combatant.
Every chance we have to engage is an opportunity. When we see a building, it is burning. When we see someone sick or wounded, a patient. When we see a hazard, it is a rescue. When we see a leadership vacuum, it is a chance to lead.
To the warrior, every opportunity is an opportunity to learn. Failing to seize those opportunities shows a lack of resourcefulness.
