Today, I reflected on the autobiographies I have read.
A common theme is how hard it is to put a framework around success.
The probability of all stars aligning in the same way as it did for another is infinitesimal.
You can choose to learn skills which made those you admire better prepared for the opportunities they were presented, but you might never have those opportunities.
Or you can choose to build the skills required to explore the opportunities that seem to always come to you, however unglamorous.
I am thankful for serendipity, and the perfectly designed opportunities it presents.
