Thursday Thoughts: Luck is what happens when …

I started following Scott McCain this year. He has so many motivating ideas in his One Thought A Day – Project Distinct 2012. Although there’s nothing specific to the yarn industry, there are a lot of good points that have really challenged my thinking in new ways. I love these kinds of things.

I must admit that I too often want to take the easy way out and just let luck find me. This reminds me that we make our own luck, so to speak.

Hope your week is going well and that you get lucky, too.
