How do you get lucky?

"I would rather be Lucky than Good.."  We used to say this quite often when I was full time PD.  It was reference to a bad guy running from the cops, while in full sprint, shooting behind himself in the direction of the police and being lucky enough to hit the pursuing police officers.

Luck as defined by Wikipedia:

Luck or fortuity is good or bad fortune in life caused by accident or chance, and attributed by some to reasons of faith or superstition, which happens beyond a person's control.[1][2][3]

I would say that I have quite a different view of luck in the Real Estate industry.

Hard work and determination make Luck...

Without a doubt, luck is a thing that might happen in Vegas.  But if you are in sales, you don't have time to get lucky.  You have to earn your own luck by the constantly pressing forward.

"But Connor, I am already too busy to work any harder..."

Trim down the time you are watching TV - That should make a heck of a dent :-)

Great point!  Reminds me of one of my father's favorite sayings..."The harder I work, the luckier I get."

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
