Kairos is one of those essential tenants of life that we are all capable of sensing, and indeed, most of us yearn for that kairotic moment in which to act. Kairos is time filled with promise and hope – a chance to act and succeed. Each day holds many kairos moments, the key to utilizing them lies in taking notice and being aware. There is also a dark side to kairos which comes into play when we wait too long and think that there is a perfect moment that will present itself magically and we hold out and miss other, more subtle (or perhaps not so subtle, just not what we think we are looking for) moments of kairos.
