Quick Story On Serendipity

Many years ago a book was published on using the mind more effectively in the solving of problems.  It was sold new in a book store, bought by some curious mind.  Read, cherished, discarded.  Ended up in a yard sale for 25 cents.  My wife's friend was wondering by, picked it up, lent it to her husband.  I happened to see it on his desk, paged through it and was so moved I bought it.  Without realizing,  I had it on my desk yesterday.  A colleague noticed it, picked it up and randomly thumbed through to a page that was discussing the exact thought he was struggling with that day.  He smiled, shook his head and put it down.  I wonder how many lives he will change from that one small paragraph.  Everything you do matters.

Excellent story. We should all pay more attention to what is happening around us. We experience serendipity without even realizing it.
