The Go For it Window was a concept introduced by David Perrel to help people spot giant opportunities in their life. Opportunities come around regularly but are mostly missed because we don't see them for what they are. Learning to spot luck as it happens and seize life's big chances is key to our success.

Developing a mindset that embraces change and discomfort is an essential part of the Growth Mindset and making the most of the "Go For it Windows" in our life.
