What’s in it for me? Learn how to generate your own good fortune by reframing the world around you.
You may think that every day is pretty much the same as the last. But in reality, the unexpected is happening around us all the time. All you need are the right eyes – and the right mindset – to see it.
This is a mindset based on practical and actionable advice that you can start applying to your life and work today. It’s easy to put on blinders every day and simply get through your workday on autopilot. But this is the kind of mindset that allows so many of us to miss the exciting connections that are waiting to be made every day. And once you start seeing these opportunities, you’ll find that life is full of serendipity, and you’ll never be the same.
In these blinks, you’ll learn
- the three most common types of serendipity;
- how a volcano led to a popular TED conference; and
- how dirty potatoes led to an innovative new appliance.
Last but not least, in Blink 10 you’ll find an exclusive Blink on Serendipity in the age of COVID-19. It covers content that’s not in the original book and was created by the author and Blinkist because serendipity now is more important than ever.
