I saw a thread on Reddit asking “How much of your success is luck?” and thought it was a great question. I wrote a short answer on Reddit, but wanted to expand on my answer a little.
The tldr version: Luck doesn’t exist.
I can hear sighs of family, friends, and colleagues now. If you’re one of them, you can stop reading now… there’s nothing new below. (I’ve said some variation of “there’s no such thing as luck” literally thousands of times in my life.)
