Luck = Hard Work + Opportunity

TechCrunch: How Great Entrepreneurs Create Their Own Luck

I read a great article at TechCrunch – “How Great Entrepreneurs Create Their Own Luck”.  It’s so true.

My favorite line: “And even though serendipity is by definition unpredictable, its appearance is anything but random.”

I often hear about how ‘lucky’ some entrepreneurs are, and when I do, I make a point to correct that person.  Sure, lottery winners are lucky, and maybe employee #1000 at Facebook or Google is kind of lucky.  But the founders of those companies are ‘lucky’ in the sense that they pulled together the ingredients that leads to success.  Luck can be created when you stop to notice all of the opportunities and run like hell after them.
