Luck in Business Decoded

luck in businessAs many people says, luck is when opportunity meets preparation. There’s a lot of truth in there, for example if you don’t ready when the opportunity comes, how can you do it if you don’t have the skill?

Problem with Luck in Business

However, I had some little problem with luck in business. If we haven’t already because there is no preparation, how come an event can be called an opportunity in the first place? We just skip it because it doesn’t interest us and because we cannot do it.

Many people only see what they want to see, so there are many hidden objects out there. Often the hidden things are the one to look out for, but unfortunately for the lack of skills or resource, we often miss them and not count them as an opportunity.

Opportunity will come and go, but it is our choice to receive it or not.

Daniel Kahneman once said that when you group many success people together, you will only get LUCK as their primary similarities.

Luck is defined as characteristic that derives from gene, that cannot be changed. I personally don’t believe it because luck can be trained.

Google Engineer Barnaby James writes on his blog, saying that skill will put you more bets on the table, but will not guarantee the results.

Of course I also don’t agree that luck is comparable to gambling. Gambling will take away your luck because of mathematical success. Gambling is conditioned by the machine as it will grant rewards after certain probability. But luck, is more complex than that.

I personally regard luck with the quantum theory, which states that if we interact with the system, it will change. So there is no way to get exact event in the future and knowing that it will happen.

This is very frustrating. Why take chances if it will not happen?

Luck in Business Decoded

Perhaps the most accurate way to describe it is by learning from Taylor Swift on her smah hit song “Shake It Off”

We just have to shake it off when bad things come, embrace it and go on to search for the working one, a.k.a the luck one.

So in nutshell, in an indifference world…we work, go home, get salary then spend it and go to work again…we have to life the life to fully accept the things that we cannot have meaningful life, so why not searching a better one, even it’s only an illusion?

At least we have a legacy to pass the knowledge on the next generation.

A New Home

a new home

It’s my new home. It is really exciting on moving on to a new home, new hosting and start from scratch. Let Google be the one to witness this moving out, so we can discussing all the things that come into our mind, together.

I remember how it felt when we moved to a new house, it was so exciting because we used to live in an apartment. So when we bought a new home, the feeling was priceless.

Although the feeling wouldn’t last long because we need to pack and unpack the things we had in the apartment. Luckily, the distance between old apartment and our new house is not very far away, so moving out was a bliss.

The first thing when we move in was to schedule all the things we need to do, instead of just leaving all the things unpacked.

As the new blog, here’s my list:

Consistent Writings

I will consistently write on this blog, although I have more issue and work to do. I will spend some time nurturing and make connections to my readers. Of course it wouldn’t happen overnight, but rather a long journey I can’t wait to experience.

No Limits

I won’t limit any categories of writings, instead I just write whatever things that came into my mind. I’d say that’s the purest way to writing new things. Exploring and trying all sort of things that came into my brain.

What I Love

I will share my experience about love, relationships, science, astronomy and even philosophy. I also love watching movies, reading books and novel.

Books and Movie Reviews

Ocassionally I watch movie on Netflix and read books online. I don’t read physical books that often because of my schedule that needs to behind computers all day long. But if I had a chance, I’d go to bookstore and buy some book and will tell you anything interesting about it and how I perceived it to be used in a real life. I love getting things not literally, but the hidden meaning of them.

So there you go, I’ll leave the rest to be decided later on as I will busy preparing things for this blog from now on.

Stay tuned and stay strong! Love Lanke
