Making Luck Happen: Janice Kaplan
2 days ago
What do Mark Zuckerberg, hockey great Wayne Gretzky, and best-selling novelist Lee Child all have in common? They all worked to make luck happen for them.
In this episode with award-winning author, editor and journalist, Janice Kaplan, we learn about the exciting ways you can grab opportunities and improve your life.
There is a clear difference between random chance and luck. The case is made in the new book that she wrote with risk-taking expert Barnaby Marsh, "How Luck Happens: Using the Science of Luck to Transform Work, Love and Life ."
Luck includes chance, but it is not a one-time event and also involves a combination of talent, open-minded research, and hard work.
We learn to how change the odds, why it may be important to move to places where your chances of success improve, and why having a positive outlook boosts your chances of long-term success.
Winning the lottery, says Janice, "is not a great example of the kind of luck we're talking about, where you do have an input, where you can change things."
