The 2012 Princeton commencement address by my favorite author Michael Lewis (“Liar’s Poker”, “Moneyball”, “Blind Side”, “The Big Short”, and many other excellent books and magazine articles – highly recommended).
Well worth reading by everybody, not just graduates. While I don’t completely agree that luck determines everything, it is definitely better to be lucky than good, as many coaches and players have admitted after a win.
I like the old saying: luck is the residue of opportunity and design.
In other words, you can put yourself in a better position to become lucky by making good decisions.
