Being Lucky

Good fortune can be influenced, so let's do it.

Do you think a little more luck in your life could help?

Someone at the Agile Testing Days once noticed that I seem to be a particularly lucky person. This made me ponder: Am I lucky? When? How often? Where? I also asked myself, whether it’s possible to influence luck.

Episodes, some from this very conference right from the beginning in 2009, illustrate how luck can strike. However, it doesn’t necessarily feel like a lucky moment at the time it happens. It may actually feel embarrassing and stressful. These stories also provide some heuristics to help you become more lucky.

Lesson learned: While luck can’t entirely be controlled, it might in fact be shaped in our favour.
