"Opportunities" - moments at which you realize you have something to add to the zeitgeist.

Some opportunities are about luck and can be done by almost anyone. Others have little to do with luck and would likely have continued regardless. It's about finding matching opportunities.

But how do we find matching opportunities for people when sometimes individuals themselves don't even know what they're capable of doing until it's brought up? And how can technology help?

Remember that all moments end but they do follow patterns.
