Finally, a reader named Scott sent me an email to say he's a firm believer in lucky breaks — and in creating them for yourself. In fact, he outlined the steps for creating such breaks on his blog, www.luckyscott.com.
You can read more about his ideas there, but his basics for creating "the lucky break factor" are to prepare yourself for whatever you want to achieve; create the best plan you can with the preparations you've made; act on your plan; expect a "lucky break"; recognize that break when it happens; adjust your plans to capitalize on your lucky break; and express gratitude for the breaks you receive.
Sounds like a good plan, Scott. Thanks for sharing it.
I'd still like to hear other ideas from readers regarding luck in the workplace, and I'll share some of your responses again in a future column.
Meanwhile, here's wishing you the best of luck at work.
