It's amazing how much of our lives comes about through chance or unexpected twists of fate.

I am struck how often people end up in jobs they hadn't anticipated, how much organisational and business success is down to luck, and how we are forced to respond to the vast and mostly unpredictable complexity of life.

We then feel an irresistible urge to retrofit meaning to maintain the illusion that we are in control.

Maybe we would be more relaxed with each other if we remembered this more often...
