SERENDIPITY

In a few days I will be testimonial in some events, from Sunnyvale to Milan, speaking about different arguments related to innovation, sustainability and internationalization.

In all of them I see a red thread that links every moment of my life lately and that we can call Serendipity.

“This discovery I made by a talisman [a procedure achieving results like a charm] … by which I find everything I want … wherever I dip for it. This discovery, indeed, is almost of that kind which I call Serendipity, a very expressive word.” Walpole formed the word on an old name for Sri Lanka, Serendip.

He explained that this name was part of the title of “a silly fairy tale, called The Three Princes of Serendip[1]: as their highnesses traveled, they were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of….”

Being curios and open minded is not so obvious, how you can understand who is?

  • An open mind person has almost always an open heart
  • An open heart has almost always shining and charming eyes
  • Charming eyes has almost always a gentle attitude
  • A gentle attitude has no envy
  • No envy means you can appreciate your fellows
  • Having fellows means you are not alone
  • Being Social minded means you know the meaning of giving back
  • Giving back is the secret of happiness
