Luck Is You ...


I was chatting with my Dad last week and he shared with me something a mentor shared with him years ago ... "luck is the residue of design." I thought this was so great but even more it felt familiar for some reason. I finally realized why as I was going through some old reading notes from 2008 this morning. This is what I found ...
  1. Be the kind of person who creates your own luck
  2. Few people realize that luck is created
Funny how things come full circle sometimes, right? So I thought I'd share this with you as you go about your week and face whatever lies ahead. Whether it's a project, landing that account, nailing that speech, getting that promotion or acing that test ... remember, "luck is the residue of design."

I all kinds of agree with you. At some point in the past, I realized that I can shape my life. There are some fortuitous events that happen, but you usually are the one who put yourself in the right place at the right time.

Brilliant post.

It's the same with the future being unshaped and that it is us who shape it. Y'know you cant just stand there waiting for luck, you gotta go make it.

That's so true...I love the way those words were put together...luck is designed by the individual. And your two points are right on the mark. Thank you for sharing!! :)

love your blog! love this post...it reminds me of a chapter from a book called "the power of kindness" where the author talks about luck is simply paying attention to all the details and taking advantage of every little opportunity that comes your way.
