Overview

Luck is the same as chance, isn't it? Something that doesn't depend on us, right? Well, maybe not. According to Janis Kaplan and Barnaby Marsh, luck is a combination of talent, chance, and hard work. Three ingredients that need to align, like three cherries in an old-fashioned slot machine.

The surprising discovery these two researchers made is that each of these three ingredients is something you can work on or create the conditions for. In How Luck Happens: Using the Science of Luck to Transform Work, Love, and Life, they show you how to do just that.

By analyzing the lives of so-called lucky people, the authors show that being lucky is much more about spotting and grabbing opportunities than being born with a gift, committing to your goals, and not being fatalistic. As Emily Dickinson said, "luck isn't chance, it's hard work".
