Among the lessons in the book, the luckiest people:

  • Don’t simply “communicate” with others, but find ways to authentically connect with others.

  • Use the right toolkit of people skills, conceptual skills, judgement and character that helps them succeed in finding new opportunities and re-framing setbacks to their advantage.

  • Swing for the fences when a big, fat pitch of opportunity comes their way.

  • Know when to lighten up and maintain perspective.

Interesting stuff. The book is called Be Luckier in Life by Craig Forman.
