Plan for and make your luck :: Blog :: Chapter 1: Myth: Don't let unexpected events disrupt your plans. Truth: Make the most of unplanned events.

December 14, 2007

John, only you and I can view this post.

[If the video we take at the ACSCI conference pertains to this chapter, we can insert the video here, like this one for Paul McCartney's "With a little luck".
We are not apposed to planning, but we don't think you should stick with a plan that is not working for you anymore. p.3 “Luck Is No Accident”

Each of the following lines are titles to sections within this chapter. There is at least one personal story in the book attached to each that will inspire you. If a title is a hyperlink, then at least one LWPS member has offered a link to a post they have written about that experience.

  1. Take advantage of unexpected disappointments. p.6
  2. Be open to changing locations and occupations. p 8
  3. Share your interests and experiences with people you meet. p.9
  4. Convert frustrations into opportunities. p 10
  5. Realize that unplanned events result in more unplanned events. p 13
  6. Make the job fit you. p 15
