Difference between fortune, chance and luck by Tina Seelig

“Difference between fortune, chance and luck

  • Fortune is things that are out of your control. I’m fortunate to be born in this place in time. I’m fortunate to be healthy.
  • Chance is something – you have to do something. You have to roll the dice, or you have to buy a lottery ticket, or you have to apply for a job.
  • Luck is defined as success or failure apparently caused by chance. Apparently – that’s the operative word.

How do you increase your luck?

  • A lot of it has to do with taking tiny risks.
  • It’s getting out of your comfort zone.
  • It’s paying attention to things that other people don’t pay attention to.
  • It’s talking to people who – where you’re going to learn something new.
  • It’s learning something new each day.”

Increasing your potential by enhancing your talents

As a company our key assets are the elite consultants working for our clients.

Remaining elite requires consultants to “increase <our> potential 10%, 20%, or 30%, by enhancing <our> talents …” – Warren Buffett

My value to my clients is my deep expertise in product design and execution with a broad knowledge of around 12 different domains I have worked in.

– that value disappears tomorrow if I do not:

  1. acquire more knowledge to broaden my expertise – in tools, technologies and techniques
  2. Learn new things such as marketing, sales, negotiation or other domains

My Goal: 1% of my time each day to learn something new
