PORTALES—A professor from Eastern New Mexico University has recently published a book that examines how recognizing and acting on opportunities affects our lives.
Don Morris, professor of accounting, is the author of Opportunity: Optimizing Life's Chances."
Published by Prometheus Books, the work focuses on pivotal decisions that alter the direction of people's lives. "Recognizing and dealing with these opportunities is one of the measures we consider when reviewing our lives and either approving or regretting decisions," said Morris.
The professor explains that in defining the characteristics of opportunity, he has synthesized insights from fields as diverse as history, criminology, economics, anthropology, physics, literature, biology, business, psychology, poetry, law, sociology, religion and philosophy.
"People often fail to distinguish between options and opportunities," said Morris. "High-end opportunities involve improving our life condition by optimizing our life's chances. In choosing high-end opportunities, we are choosing to alter the course of our lives."
