Change of plans

I'm in Houston today and the arrival of tropical storm ERIN has forced me to modify my travel plans a bit. While it didn't negatively impact my business in Houston (I got the deal done), it did however open up some additional opportunities as I'm routing back home through Detroit instead of Minneapolis and there's some opportunity there that I'm going to jump on.

When situations change and you are forced to change your established plan, are you being put into a losing situation, or do you reshape your fortunes to come out ahead?

My goal was to avoid the weather, and see where my options took me. When I saw Detroit as a possibility, I jumped on it. Had I been focussed on just making sure I got home, I would have missed out.
