My favorite thought from last year was in an article on Tony Hsieh’s thoughts on ‘accelerating serendipity’.
The last thing we want from our days is for them to be consistently similar.
In the end, our lives and our businesses are ideas about ideas and more often than not our new ideas come to us when our paths have hints of randomness and serendipity.
Read the random book.
Shake hands with the stranger.
Take the long route to work.
Listen to the weird tunes.
This is how one accelerates serendipity.
And then you will…
See what you never saw and hear what you never heard.
