In the past year or so, I’ve been thinking about Luck a lot — in terms of how a chain of random events can lead us to our destination.
With that, every time I mention “luck” in a conversation, others think that I am talking about just kicking back and waiting for things to happen — which actually is the very opposite of what I am talking about.
I was even happy to hear Jason Fried talk about luck recently.
With the success he’s had, it’s very humbling to hear this from him.
I used to think luck didn’t matter. It’s embarrassing to even think about who I must have been when I allowed myself to think that. I remember even saying it on stage in 2009 at Y Combinator’s Startup School. Luckily, we’re all capable of change.— Jason Fried (@jasonfried) September 21, 2019
