Show Notes My guest today, Dr. Neil Farber, presents a powerful case for the miracle of Serendipity and the Art of Paying Attention. As Neil Farber and I chat, it becomes apparent that many of our most important decisions in life are the result of unexpected and surprising events that seem to occur out of nowhere. A man with fabulous stories about life’s serendipitous events, Dr. Farber convinced me that my life personally has been more determined by serendipity than it has by conscious planning. Now that was a surprise. Neil Farber’s book, Serendipity: Utilizing Everyday Unexpected Events to Improve Your Life and Career, offers a most helpful review of serendipity and important tools for identifying when such events happen in your life.
