I’ve won: An ipad 1; A $100 Golf Outing; A pair of mittens (REALLY nice expensive wollen mittens); Tickets to see U2; Tickets to see Bill Cosby; Tickets to see Rusted Root (a band I love); Various CDs; Autographed books; and other things that evidently I can’t remember. I read recently that luck is for suckers and that it’s better to be good. I am good at many things but I’m also lucky. I don’t win lotteries. I do win as the dealer at the church casino night black jack tables, but I don’t gamble otherwise. Two people that I’ve personally invited to networking events have won give aways too. This all said I don’t use luck to try to win contracts or hunt deer or drive a car – I use tactics.
So you make the call: Am I lucky or just good.
