How to improve your luck

No matter your work ethic or intelligence, luck is a major variable in any successful outcome.  I learned a phrase that’s worth sharing:  “increase the surface area of luck.”

It’s almost impossible to connect dots forward, but easy in hindsight.  Who knew that offering helpful advice would turn a stranger into an investor?  How could you have foreseen that selflessly promoting someone’s work would lead to a lifelong relationship with one of that person’s close friends?

Increasing the surface area means expanding your influence, assistance, wealth and knowledge with others.  This catapults the probability that so-called serendipities, unexplainable circumstances, and unpredictable luck will seem to land in your lap.
