Serendipity – making fortunate discoveries by accident

Odyssey of the Mind

Many discoveries of our time were by accident. However, note, “In the school of  discovery, chance favours the prepared mind”  And what does this mean?

Naturally, when we purpose to seek an answer or solution to some problem, the mind will most likely become exceptionally sensitive to any occurrence or clue that might be relevant to the quest. 

The essence of this post is to say, when you seek answers, be willing to invest a good deal of time in seemingly “fruitless” work, for in doing so, you expose yourself to fortunate accident.

Serendipity it is,   that faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident. Solutions at times come this way. So, Keep moving, keep trying, you might soon bump into the solution you seek.
