The Opportune Time

Sam Wolf


Ancient writers often referred to two types of time: kairos time and chronos time. Chronos is linear time and measures things in a sequence. First this, then that. Kairos time can be loosely defined as the “right” time or the “opportune” time. Think of it this way, if you stand over home plate and repeatedly swing a baseball bat in regular intervals, you are participating in a chronos event. If, however, you wait and swing just as the baseball crosses the plate and make solid contact that sends the ball over the left field fence, you have just participated in a kairos moment.

In your business, which type of time do you prefer?

At Corporate Flight Management our motto is “Because Time Creates Opportunity”. But it isn’t just any time. It is kairos time that creates the opportunity. Private corporate aviation can create this opportunity for you and your business. It is about being in the right place at the right time, whether that is closing a critical deal or being home in time for that important family event.

If you’re trying to achieve this with the airlines, you’re stuck in their time –chronos time. And you know that it is anything but opportune and eminently frustrating. The good news is that there is an alternative to the norm of airline travel and it is far more available and affordable than you might imagine.

Corporate aviation can help you and your company manage the one resource you simply can’t create more of: time. When you are able to manage your time and your company’s time more efficiently and cost-effectively, you generate many more kairos moments.

Don’t just swing and hope the bat connects. Be in the right place, at the right time and swing for the fence.

After all, “Time Creates Opportunity”.
