Dumb Luck Or Plan

I had an opportunity to have several conversations with a few people and I realised something. There are people who planned everything for their future while there are people who makes the best of what they get as it comes.

I was chatting with my Regional Quality Manager. I was curious as to how he got himself to where he is today, offices around South East Asia region answers to him regarding quality stuff. He's something, really some guy. He told me it was a fluke that he gotten into the quality line. He just graduated and was employed as a trainee. A year later, they put him in quality because it was the only vacancy available. But of course, not everyone gets this opportunity.

Then there are many people who planned meticulously about their future. Every single detail and lots of plan Bs, Cs and etc. No doubt it works and its been proven many times round. Though I can't say much about it cause I've been more of a guy with strings of dumb luck handed to me. I am grateful for it though I should start taking charge of my own life. Make my own future.

I wouldn't mind having more dumb lucks coming around in my future. I am, after all an opportunist. However, spotting an opportunity is the tricky part. Sometimes its right in my face, sometimes its light years away.

And Ando from Heroes is really cute. Watching Heroes 22 as I write this post.

-Live Long & Prosper

I've tried planning before but more often than not I end up disappointed because things don't turn out like I want them to. Oh well. I guess I've had my fair share of dumb luck too eh?

Nway right now I'm halfway between being a planner and an opportunist. I've learnt to plan for tomorrow and also accept things if they don't happen.

One thing's for sure though, it makes you a better person at the end of the day.

PS: Damn it why is everybody talking about Heroes? Looks like I'm gonna have a Heroes marathon after my exams. Haha!
