I just read “Be lucky – it’s an easy skill to learn” in the Telegraph.  Apparently, you can become a lucky person.  The three keys:

1- Listen to your intuition.  Pay attention to how you think and feel about options.  [This is a great point… I often make decisions that make sense rationally but aren’t what I really want to do.]

2-Variety in life.  Keep your eyes open to new opportunities.  When you go somewhere, be open to doing things that you did not necessarily go there to do.   For instance, when going to the grocery store, don’t be so focused on your list that you miss the sweet deal on the other type of apples… or something.

3- See the bright side of your situation.  Der.
