How to create serendipity?
'One way is to go for a walk. The history of innovation is replete with stories of good ideas that occurred to people while they were out on a stroll.'
'The…stroll removes you from the task-based focus of modern life - paying bills, answering email, helping kids with homework - and deposits you in a more associative state. Given enough time, your mind will often stumble across some old connection that it had long overlooked, and you experience that delightful feeling of private serendipity:
Why didn't I think of that before?'
