After listening to various definitions of luck through the years, I am very curious about luck.
Apparently, optimistic people are lucky because they expect to be. This is similar to the placebo effect, affirmations, visualization and similar mindset theories.
I am only on chapter 6 of the book but I love it already. It is confirming my already biased opinion that my luck is up to me.
I suggested doing a luck experiment in a comment of Jason's writing. I think I have read enough to attempt one of those.
Goal - To manufacture luck
Success - If there are considerably more "lucky" events on a given day than usual.
Time frame - 24 hours.
Being aware of people and my surroundings.
Attending more networking events, listening and talking about things that I am working on.
Telling people I am doing this experiment
Helping other people become more lucky
Writing down what worked and what didn't for round 2.
I shall post my results here.
