The phrase “the window of opportunity” seems not wholly satisfactory
Admittedly you can see through a window unless you have thick net curtains but how many of us would be able to leap out of the window and seize the opportunity by the throat, if you see what I mean? And if you were in the attic you’d be dead before you got there…so what we need are “doors of opportunity”
The problem with that is you can’t see through a door unless it’s either got a window or is a glass door..So if you want success try living outside in a transparent tent where nothing will get in your way if anything passes by and you will get free publicity
I expect the phrase was made up by someone who writes speeches for politicians.
If you want a to succeed you must grasp the windows of opportunity as they go by and squeeze every last drop of rum out of them

To look or not to look.Out of a selection

Windows, they ought to be taxed I say.
Windows.. they give you an illusion of being in the sun but did you know we can see in…
