Have you ever noticed that some people just seem to have really good luck? Do they have like cosmic signals attached to each of them that tells the universe how to respond? Or are they approaching the world differently?
That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Christian Busch. He’s an internationally known expert in the areas of innovation and entrepreneurship. He is the Director of the Global Economy Program at New York University’s Center for Global Affairs, and also teaches at the London School of Economics. And He’s a cofounder of Leaders on Purpose and the Sandbox Network.
His most recent book is called The Serendipity Mindset. And his main message is that serendipity isn’t about luck in the sense of simple randomness. It’s about seeing links that others don’t, combining these observations in unexpected and strategic ways, and learning how to detect the moments when apparently random or unconnected ideas merge to form new opportunities.
This is action and data driven knowledge from a practical expert, with a clear blueprint for how we can cultivate serendipity to increase innovation, influence, and opportunity in every aspect of our lives.'
