The Right Moment

Posted on by admin

“The right moment wears a full head of hair: when it has been missed, you can’t get it back.”
   –Francois Rabelais – 1493-1553, French Clergyman

Almost 500 years and this analogy is still clear.  The greatest impact we can have on anyone occurs at the first encounter.  That single instant of first visual contact reaches cleanly and unobstructed deep down in to our most profound and primitive memories and feelings.  It is what you then remember and judge from.  It is a survival reaction; it is the first order of protection.

What is the power of a full head of healthy hair at that instant?  No matter what happens it is over and cannot be repeated, it never looks back, time marches on, you just took the one-way trip that went from zero-to-one.  How do you think you did?  Could you do better with more abundant, lusher, and healthier hair?
