Opportunities are often described as moving things (objects, time, vehicles etc) we have the chance to obtain or join. Look at the following examples:

 

  1. Seize the day!

(Take advantage of the opportunity)

 

  1. Don’t let the opportunity get away.

 

  1. Just grab the chance while you can.

 

  1. Take the offer before they change their mind.

 

(It might escape)

 

  1. Don’t be left flat-footed.

(Too slow to take advantage of an opportunity.)

 

  1. He let the chance pass him by.

 

  1. If you wait too long to decide you’ll miss the boat.

 

  1. The offer is no longer on the table – I’m afraid the train has left the station.

 

  1. I hope all the staff will get on board with the new strategy.

 

  1. The early bird catches the worm!
