Reversing Murphy's Law: The Serendipity Choice


Reversing Murphy’s law: how to set ourselves up so that anything that can go right, will go right. We’ll explore what technologies you can use to create more moments of unexpected luck in your life. We’ll look at how, as entrepreneurs, freelancers and digital nomads, we can seek out the opportunity hotspots on our adventures. In his book Luck Factor, Richard Wiseman wrote: “Lucky people create, notice, and act upon the chance opportunities in their lives.” We're going to explore the less obvious things you can do to conjure more moments of unexpected relevance along your path.


  1. What technology out there can help you create more luck in your life?
  2. Where are the new serendipity hotbeds?
  3. Who could you be connecting with to ramp up your creativity, inspiration and ideas?
