I was feeling kind of down after a workday cooped up at home, but then I read these two things and feel like I just drank a shot of clarity and awesome.

1)  This weird and wonderful article on creating your own luck, from the Telegraph circa 2003:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/3304496/Be-lucky-its-an-easy-skill-to-learn.html

Self-help-y but in the best way.  All about having the clarity and confidence in yourself to notice opportunities — and the trust, instinct and experience to take them.  The best stuff in my life happened to me that way.

2)  Then I read this master class on video production and translation from two recent Narco News Authentic Journalism school grads:

http://narcosphere.narconews.com/thefield/3803/torture-egypt-making-video

The video profiles the contrast between the Egyptian goverment’s praise of its police force and that force’s record of torture, as well as the struggle against it.  Watch the video but also read the article to learn some hot download and editing tricks, and be wowed by the patience and focus required to edit and produce something effective — in a language you don’t understand.

Off to meet one of the videomakers at a great local bar.  Bye!

Creating your own luck is something I am very passionate about. I started my adult life in a teenage homeless hostel and went on to become a successful entrepreneur. A lot of people who did not know me told me I was lucky so I decided if this is what people think is luck then anyone can learn how to be lucky. Now I write and blog about making your own luck.
