I often hear this phrase, It’s better to be lucky than good! and I’ve always found it a bit of an odd statement.
Do I believe in lucky? Perhaps.
I think that luck exists in a lot of forms. The guy that’s never played 21, yet blows everyone away on the first hand. The person that walks into the local 7-eleven and buys the winning ticket to state jackpot. I think there are many events like this that could be easily attributed to Lady Luck and all her glory.
When it comes to business though, I prefer to think of it more as, It’s better to be good enough to create your own luck.
