Lucky or Good

You’ve heard the phrase, “It’s better to be lucky than good,” and I’ve often wondered about this, especially in racing and relationships, but most importantly in my career. I want to be lucky, but I also want to be good, and since today is St. Patrick’s Day and I am wearing green, I must be lucky, even though the luck of the Irish isn’t all that lucky. “The idea was that any Irish man or woman who made good must be lucky rather than smart, hard-working or talented.” Interesting. 

Thomas Jefferson said, “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.” Now, that’s what I’m talking about.
