Serendipity is the gift of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. In the book ďThe Road Less Traveled,Ē M. Scott Peck, M.D. says that it happens to everyone, but not everyone recognizes it or takes advantage of it. Either we are not fully aware of itís presence or we donít appreciate the value of it. If these events are happening to us all of the time, how many have we let slip by? There is no way of knowing, but we can learn to watch for these events and learn to see the value in our encounters.
Tonight I had a very good meeting with a couple of friends that helped me clarify my thoughts and set goals for me to work on. Thatís not what we were meeting about at all, but by the time we were done I had an outline of tasks that I had to take care of, which I was planning on doing in the next two weeks anyway. But now I have focus and more concrete ideas. I didnít call the meeting. I didnít expect this outcome. But I appreciated the gift that will help me be more effective.
