Lucky You by Price Pritchett

I just finished reading a great book.

Everything Pritchett writes is worth reading. Here are my notes:

  • Win or lose, Mother Nature insists that you take new risks every spring.

  • Every year is a gamble. But you can work the odds.

  • Resources gravitate toward clear goals. And luck is a glorious resource when you’re pursuing a challenging ambition.

  • “It’s often easier to do something 10 times better than it is to make it 10% better.” Astro Teller

  • “Never be so focused on what you’re looking for that you overlook the thing you actually find.” Ann Patchett

  • Overdosing on routine kills your curiosity. Monotony stifles your sense of wonder. You lose your eye for opportunity. “If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal.” Paul Coelho

  • You have 1,440 minutes coming to you each day. Steal some of your unproductive time and invest it in reverie. Let your subconscious have a chance to reveal its secrets.

  • “In the long run, people of every age and in every walk of life seem to regret ‘not’ having done things much more than they regret things they did.” Daniel Gilbert, Ph.D

  • Luck seems to play favorites. It appears biased in favor of people who have a clear sense of what they want.

  • “Act the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you act.” Leonard Cohen

  • Feel gratitude that you’re in the position to give. Consider it a lucky break for yourself because, to a large degree, fulfillment will come from within yourself.
