Luck Is No Accident: Making the Most of Happenstance in Your Life and Career – John Krumboltz
Unplanned events—chance occurrences—more often determine life and career choices than all the careful planning we do. A chance meeting, a broken appointment, a spontaneous vacation trip, a “fill-in” job, a hobby—these are the kinds of experiences that lead to unexpected life directions and career choices.
Newly revised and updated with fresh examples and current issues for today’s challenging times, Luck is No Accident actively encourages readers to create their own unplanned events, to anticipate changing their plans frequently, to take advantage of chance events when they happen, and to make the most of what life offers. The book has a friendly, easy style about it, and is packed with personal stories that really bring the ideas into focus.
