As time goes by, we sometimes run into situations we never forget. These are the situations where serendipity (the act of unexpectedly finding something of value) can play a major role. Wikipedia states: Serendipity means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful without looking for it. So it seems, serendipity is all a matter of coincidence. But do coincidences really exist? Or is there a higher (hidden) plan that guides us humans into believing we accidently run into coincidences? Either way, what really matters is if you can spot serendipities and act upon them. Social media might increasingly be helpful here. By connecting in social networks, you sometimes discover hidden value in a connection you couldn’t have dreamed of before. So the serendipity is all around, waiting to be discovered. Good hunting!
