CreativeMornings: R. Eric Thomas on “Serendipity”










When you hear stories about serendipity, they have an undertone of delight, pleasure, and sometimes profound transformation… or, as this month’s CreativeMornings Philadelphia speaker R. Eric Thomas puts it, accidentally succeeding. The idea is cultivating readiness for the unexpected good. Using the tumultuous past year of his professional life – which started with a viral Facebook post and ended with him being published in The New York Times twice in one week (with a layoff and a wedding thrown in the middle), he’ll detail the ways that serendipity, preparedness (or lack thereof), and abject terror have propelled Eric to ponder the degree to which we can control our own luck.
