Thanks for this reference. I had never heard of Prof. Wiseman's work until I read it in your newsletter and then on this board.
Phil Thanks for the Time Saving Links. I didn't have to hunt this information down.
Dien this "Luck Spotting process" is similar to certain "Success List" process of Mr. Lichtman :->
You're right - there are similarities! Thanks for pointing that out!
(The only difference I think is that Mr. Lichtman also talks about writing down "failures" - so you can try to avoid them - whereas Richard Wiseman specifically said in the talk I attended to NOT write down "bad things"...)
By the way, Lichtman has some great stuff... I gotta get back to doing it, since it's very powerful!
I will use this process more diligently going forward.
Along with Luck Wiseman brings his work into a business context when he discusses Opportunities.
Did anyone else SPOT this article on Wiseman's site???
I just read Wiseman's Forbes article on "Why some people SPOT opportunities and others don't"
You can also give YOURSELF a quick 3:09 minute demonstration of the principles Wiseman discusses by watching this Video now
The Color Changing card trick
After watching the Above, you will see PROOF that you may not be spotting anything at all :->
Thanks for those links too! He has some great stuff on video...
(Not all of it is about "luck" - since some of it is about his other research - but all of it is entertaining!)
Dien Thanks again I really appreciate this post.
Let's Get Luckier and start Spotting More Opportunities in 2008
HAPPY NEW YEAR SOWPUBBERS
I'm looking forward to a "luckier" 2008 too!
(Things are already heading that way, so I'm looking forward for the trend to continue!)
HAPPY NEW YEAR Duane and everyone!
